The 2015 World Party Event kicks off in the heart of Swansea city centre  in Castle Square, Swansea at 11am on Saturday 22nd August 2015.

The World Party has become an inherent part of Swansea’s cultural scene since its recommencement 5 years ago. For the last two years it has been held in Castle Square in order to provide a  better opportunity for visitors to Swansea City Centre to participate. The event is organised by the City & County of Swansea Council’s Leisure department in partnership with Swansea Bay Regional Equality Council (SBREC).

A large number of community organisations participate in the event adding a new community group every year where the groups are given the opportunity to share their culture, heritage and cuisine with the visitors to the event.

The World Party Event has become an annual event since it commenced in 2009. In past years it has been held outside the National Waterfront Museum. This year it has moved to one of the nicest parks in the area. The event will feature the best that each community can showcase in terms of culture and traditions. Dedicated marquees will be showcasing each of the communities from around the globe with a common theme of a united and integrated Swansea.

The event headlines with an internationally popular act “The Stranger Family”. There will be many other acts, dance and music from a local Celtic perspective all the way through to Bollywood dancing from India and Capoeira from Brazil. One of our local talent to perform are A3, the street-dance group consisting of three brothers of Zimbabwean heritage lead by Arnold Matsena. A3 became a national phenomenon in 2010 when the group became finalists in Britain’s Got Talent. This will be a great opportunity for everyone to witness cultural harmony that some said will never flourish and succeed.

Celebrating the World of Swansea

2 Comments World Party Events

27th August 2011 sees the return of the World Part Event to Museum Green (opposite National Waterfront Museum) in Swansea. This is an all day spectacular held every year honouring the multi-ethnic communities living and working in the City and County of Swansea. The event will be held between 12 noon and 6pm.

The event has been made possible because of a good partnership effort between the various ethnic minority communities of Swansea including lead been provided by City and County of Swansea and Swansea Bay REC.

You can expect to see local artists performing on a stage alongside some of the established professional performers. You can jiggle to a performance of African drums followed by Bollywood dancing or listen to the classical tones of a local Swansea University performing group. But the big name this year to enthrall the crowds is Hartinder Dhami, an internationally known Bhangra artist known for his innovative Bhangra representations. H Dhami is a young and fresh bhangra artist with an international fan base already rocking to his tunes. Dhami’s father is the legendary Palvinder Dhami from the Bhangra band Heera. H Dhami has been performing on stage from the age of six alongside his already popular and well known father.

Alongside this will be marquees holding demonstrations with an international flavour including two of the Celtic nation states i.e. Wales and Ireland. There will be representations from the African, Bangladeshi, Chinese, Indian and Thai communities amongst others. The Arab and Muslim communities of Swansea will be making an extra special effort as it is the month of Ramadan for them and therefore their participation will be whilst they are observing a complete fast during sunlight hours.

City and County of Swansea and Swansea Bay REC would like to invite everyone to witness this special extravaganza and see for themselves how a cohesive community should live and work together.
