Hide&Seek team up with National Theatre Wales for the second leg of the Sandpit UK Tour, offering the people of Cardiff the chance to take part in a social gaming extravaganza.

The Cardiff leg of the tour will see Hide&Seek support local artists in developing brand new ways to engage people through social games, featuring their newly created games during an evening’s festivities.

Hide&Seek team up with National Theatre Wales on the second leg of its Sandpit UK Tour. Hide&Seek’s events have been a regular fixture on London’s Southbank, introducing the public to cultural destinations which they may not have visited, or heard of, and transforming the spaces to incorporate art, music, theatre and everything from lasers and fluffy toys to grand pianos.

The Cardiff leg of the Sandpit Tour will showcase the gaming creations of local gamemakers, Bethan Marlow, Rhiannon Evans, and Rhys Thomas, who Hide&Seek’s own game making extraordinaire and Sandpit curator Holly Gramazio has been holding workshops with to take their game making skills to the next level. Their games Watch Your Back, Nicked!, and The Angels Project! along with Phonebox Frenzy! created by the Shellshock Theatre will be premiered in Cardiff during the event and are all sure to leave a lasting impression.

Catherine Paskell, Creative Associate of National Theatre Wales said: “National Theatre Wales is already pioneering, establishing a social network ahead of a full web presence later in the Autumn and is running an evening of gaming in partnership with Hide&Seek for the Sandpit UK Tour.

Our aim is to unearth Wales-based people interested in playing and creating games, encouraging them to build up their own participatory networks within Wales and to potentially work with National Theatre Wales in the future. We encourage audiences to participate and feedback through the online social network, helping to develop games from home-grown talent and Sandpit stalwarts.”
