A Summer of Fun for Cardiff’s Children and Young People

6 July 2022

After the success of last year’s Summer of Smiles and the Winter of Wellbeing, a ‘Summer of Fun’ festival will take place for the children and young people of Cardiff across the summer holidays.

Cardiff Council’s, Welsh Government funded Summer of Fun programme is offering free and low-cost opportunities and activities for 0-25 year olds across the city from July to September.

Our Child Friendly Cardiff Team is coordinating the programme aimed at supporting Cardiff’s future generations with their social, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing over the summer.

Summer of Fun is part of Cardiff’s Child Friendly Recovery, which began after the pandemic. Child Friendly Cardiff closely aligns with the city’s ambition to become an internationally recognised Child Friendly City, as recommended by the UK Committee for UNICEF.

Cabinet Member for Education, Employment and Skills, Cllr Sarah Merry, said: “It’s important that we continue our commitment to re-engaging the children and young people of Cardiff with their city whilst putting smiles on their faces and providing new opportunities to relax and have fun with friends and family.”

The Summer of Fun will cover three areas:
A two-week festival on City Hall Lawn
Citywide activities
An arts and cultural programme curated by Arts Active
