City of Arcades Day – 16th November


City of Arcades Day will be a celebration of the seven arcades and independent businesses, featuring offers, events, live music and installations. The aim will be to drive visitors to the city to explore what the arcades have to offer alongside the surrounding shops, cafes and bars.

The activity will be supported by a dedicated page on the City of Arcades website, a business toolkit to include posters, leaflets and social posts and branded merchandise. The day will be promoted through Cardiff across bus rears and digital ads, print advertising, online advertising, social content and media relations. All digital activity will be bilingual.
