Out of Doors LIVE is back for 2022 at the Summer of Fun Festival. 

Summer of Fun is a festival for Cardiff’s children and young people running throughout the summer holidays.

Play, Explore, Create & Grow!

Following on from last year’s Summer of Smiles and the Winter of Wellbeing,  we are delighted  that we have been commissioned again by Cardiff Council by the Child Friendly Cardiff UNICEF National Friends Cities and Communities  to curate and deliver a city wide arts and cultural programme  for children & young people, funded by the Welsh Government. #SummerOfFun.

Throughout July and August Arts Active are working with partners across the city to run a range of fun arts events and activities for children, young people and families from 0-25. Our showcase event will be the Out of Doors LIVE at the Summer of Fun festival on the City Hall Lawn where from 23 July – 7 August we will have a packed programme of  arts activities and entertainment.

‘We cannot wait to start our programme of creative activities, events and performances for children and young people of all ages. Since last summer we have continued to develop our partnerships with key organisations across the city. We all have one aim in common and that is to support families, children and young people in offering varied opportunities to play, explore, create and grow which will we hope bring joy, improve wellbeing, social development and so much more’. Bryony Harris, Arts Active Trust Programme Director. 

Tickets to the two week festival site can be booked via the #childfriendlycardiff website: Summer of Fun : Child Friendly Cardiff
