Can we charge for tickets?
We hope that most events are free and accessible to all, but understand that some events will incur costs to the venue so ticketed events are acceptable. If you’re selling tickets you will need to set up your own Eventbrite (or similar) page and share the URL with us when you register your event.
Do I have to screen every Cymru game?
Ideally all the games will be shown at your venue/events - even if it’s a small screen.
What type of event can I arrange?
Be creative! You’re welcome to arrange and host any kind of event promoting Cymru, creativity and community. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Live music | Comedy | Poetry event | Book launch | Children’s events and workshops | Art installation | Theatre | Writing workshop | Live podcast recording | Art exhibition | Film screening | Art workshop | DJ sets | Q&As | Dance | Jamming session | Immersive technology and experiences
Can I organise more than one event?
Yes. You’re more than welcome to arrange a wider programme of events. Please submit every event as a single event on the registration form.
Does the event need to have a clear football link?
Although the World Cup will be the underlying theme weaving through all events and art forms the events don’t necessarily need to be about football.
Do you fund events?
The FAW will not be funding events, but thanks to National Lottery players, and the money they raise each week for good causes, the Arts Council of Wales’s fund, Create, is offering grants of up to £10,000 for artists, arts organisations and others to celebrate Wales’ footballing success, and engage with their communities. They will be accepting applications to coincide thematically with Gŵyl Cymru Festival and Wales in the World Cup 2022 between Monday 5th September – Monday 10th October. Eligible projects will need to take place between Thursday 20th of October and Sunday 4th of December.
If I run an event, what’s in it for me?
The public events will be promoted through FAW’s networks and all events will have access to a digital toolkit full of videos, social assets and playlists to use during their events. More than anything it’s a way of uniting all the Cymru and Gŵyl Cymru Festival events - Together, Stronger.
