Swansea Guildhall is being lit up to celebrate the 11th anniversary of Swansea becoming a City of Sanctuary. In 2010, Swansea became the UK’s second official City of Sanctuary – and Wales’ first – highlighting the area as having a culture of hospitality and welcome. Swansea Council is dedicated to offering welcome to sanctuary seekers. Lighting up the Guildhall was a way to celebrate this.
