Express your love for our Cardiff

30 Sep 2020

“I knew I was in love when...”

For Heart of Cardiff, we want to hear your story: tell us about a moment you fell in love. Not with a person, not with a thing, but with a city! Your city. Our city. Cardiff.

Tell us why this city means so much to you. What is its appeal? What drew you here? What makes you stay?

“Why am I here? Why did I stay here? Let me tell you why…”

We’re talking about the moment you felt that you belonged, that you were safe, and that you were home. Our city is so many things: it brings us comfort or makes us smile, has instances which make our everyday lives a little more pleasant, the places we go on special occasions, where we go for reflection and remembrance. The memories we cherish and the spots we’ll never forget.

We are looking for moments that are real to you. Big or small, boring or bizarre, whatever you tell us about should simply illustrate your love for our city and why it is your home. We are seeking creative and humorous contributions, as well as heartfelt ones.

What do we need from you?

You can express your love in a letter, a poem, or draw it as a comic book, paint it as a portrait, compose a song – how you choose to do it is up to you. They can be as unique as the love you feel.

They should be no longer than 5 minutes in length or 1 side of A4 paper.

We will share a selection of the responses via our social media channels as well as displaying them in the theatre when we re-open our doors.

You can post them to us at:

Love Letters
C/O Sherman Theatre
Senghennydd Road
CF24 4YE

Or email them to:

We can’t wait to hear from you!
