Free family fun day at the Cardiff Story Museum this weekend

A free family fun day is to be held this Saturday at The Cardiff Story Museum, as part of the nationwide Great Get Together. 

Now in its second year, the Great Get Together was started by former MP Jo Cox’s family and friends after she was killed in June 2016. The aim is to bring communities together and celebrate all that unites us and is inspired by her belief that we have more in common than that which divides us.

Craft activities, face painting, museum trails and Samba music workshops from charity Live Music Now  are just some of the fun events lined up  at the museum on Saturday, June 23.  The free fun day is on from 10am until 3pm and if the weather is sunny, activities will also be held in St John’s Churchyard Garden next door to the museum.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Cllr Peter Bradbury said:

“The reason we’re staging this fun day is to celebrate our diverse communities here in Cardiff and the fact that we have a lot in common as we get together and enjoy time with our families – something I know that Jo Cox would approve of.’

“Our event is a big family fun day – full of celebration, colour and life.  Cardiff is a city that has been created by lots of different communities living and working together, and we’re using things that we all share – like music, and fun – to celebrate that sense of togetherness.”

The Cardiff Story Museum Great Get Together is part of a UK-wide programme of events taking place this weekend.
