Swansea Bid 2021
We were pleased to welcome Mr Andrew Keen to our assembly this morning.
He spoke to the children about the Swansea Bid 2021. The children were excited to learn about all the fantastic opportunities and events that would take place in and around Swansea if the City was lucky enough to win the competition.
The initiative is administered and judged by the UK Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. The title is awarded once every four years and is a hard fought for honour. The inaugural holder was Derry-Londonderry in 2013, with Hull taking over the title this year. Both cities have reported significant social and economic benefits as a result of holding the title. Winning UK City of Culture status would result in a multi – million pound boost for the City, which would do wonders for Swansea’s economy.
The result will be announced next Thursday, 7th December on the One Show.
