The World Cup starts this Thursday and Tŷ Pawb will be joining the party!
Over the next month, 32 countries will take part in 65 matches played at venues across Russia, the hosts of the tournament. It promises to be a festival of colour and culture with some exciting games and some of the best footballers in the world taking part.
Tŷ Pawb will be celebrating this carnival atmosphere with a whole host of World Cup themed events taking place over the next month.
We will be showing selected games on the big screen in our People’s Square. This will be a family friendly space to come and enjoy the games. The markets, bar and food court will all be open as usual so you’ll be able to drop in and watch the games with a drink or a bite to eat.
World Cup themed activities for the whole family
Starting from this Saturday, 10am-12pm our friends at Plât Bach will be holding a sticker swapshop! Bring your albums and stickers and see what deals there are to be made! This activity is suitable for any age. We get the feeling it might not just be children who’ll be taking part!
Also on Saturday, there will be a flag making activity for children and a World Cup themed treasure hunt which you’ll be able to take part in throughout the tournament.
Member for People – Communities, Partnerships Public Protection and Community Safety, Cllr Hugh Jones, said: “The World Cup is a huge international sporting event that celebrates cultures from all over the world so I’m delighted that Tŷ Pawb is getting involved with this.
“Our aim is to make Tŷ Pawb a unique, family friendly space to come and enjoy the tournament. With a range of related activities and events taking place throughout the month of the tournament, I hope this will create a real buzz and an inclusive carnival atmosphere that everyone will be able to enjoy.”
