Swansea is celebrating 50 years as a city in 2019 and we want you to be part of it.
We want to celebrate the people, places, events and businesses that have contributed to Swansea’s history, particularly during the past 50 years.
And we want to look forward to the many exciting developments planned for the city’s future.
Who is Swansea’s greatest icon? Or is the city’s greatest icon a historic moment in time or an unforgettable place?
As Swansea celebrates its 50th anniversary as a city, you have the chance to choose the most special thing about Swansea.
A list of 50 people, places and events – and even a dog – has been drawn up for people to vote on ahead of the announcement of the winner in October.
To celebrate Swansea’s 50 years as a city, we’re giving away 50 pairs of golden tickets to events taking place between June and December.
A major programme of events and activities are already planned to celebrate Swansea’s 50th birthday and you can plan and hold your own celebrations too.
Hold a street party. Organise a concert. Get creative. Tell us what you’re doing and we’ll promote it on our website and on social media.
