Bamboo - Square Mile Summer Programme & Gŵyl Parc Fest 2024

The Square Mile Partnership are very excited to announce our latest project ‘Bamboo’ in East Cardiff.


The Square Mile Partnership are very excited to announce our latest project ‘Bamboo’ in East Cardiff. 

This year we are exploring UK grown Bamboo with the communities of Splott, Tremorfa and Adamsdown - how can we all be inspired to create, play and imagine using one of the most incredible sustainable materials on the planet? 

Over the summer holidays local artists, makers, creative practitioners, and community groups will connect, exchange ideas and work together to explore Bamboo through a programme of fun, creative, and accessible activities including crafts, making, circus, dance, music and play. The Square Mile Summer Programme is free to local people taking place in community venues across Splott, Tremorfa and Adamsdown. 

The summer programme will culminate in the annual festival Parc Fest 2024, taking place in August. This year there will be a parade through local streets, followed by a Bamboo take-over of Anderson Fields. It will be another extraordinary day of community celebration, performances, installations, food, music, making and much more! There will also be an opportunity to see NoFit State’s new show BAMBOO as part of the festival.

Parc Fest is produced by the Square Mile Partnership - a celebration of the people of Splott, Tremorfa and Adamsdown. 

Stay tuned here for more updates on the festival and summer programme.
