Award-winning events

Whether that was enormous inflatable daffodils 60 metres in the sky to celebrate St David’s Day, a giant gingerbread house arriving on the Hayes overnight, or 206,000 people visiting Cardiff for the first City of Arcades Day.

Not only did these events create a buzz and excitement around the city centre, but they saw significant increases in spend and profile. This success has been acknowledged by our multiple award wins for these experiences.

Since 2022, FOR Cardiff have collaborated with St David’s Dewi Sant to bring toy brick model trails to Cardiff city centre. These trails have filled the shopping centre during the Easter holidays, driving footfall and spend.
