The first Aphetor Games, a new event pitting teams of social media creators against each other, is underway in Snowdonia in Wales.
Hosted by YouTube stars Chunkz and Yung Filly as well as presenter, songwriter and Fulham Ladies footballer Chelcee Grimes, The Aphetor Games brings together 20 content creators to compete across three days of unique, socially-distanced challenges at Zip World and other venues in Snowdonia.
TikTok star Amelia Gething, Ninja Warrior UK champion Tim Champion, Love Island’s Eyal Booker, World Parkour Champion David Nelmes and 2018 ‘The Voice’ runner-up Donel Mangena are among the contenders for the overall crown, and they’re each documenting their journey on social.
Covid-safe challenges overseen by independent health and safety experts include gravity kart racing, obstacle courses and a bar-hanging challenge above a reservoir. And the action can be seen for free at aphetor.com and across social by searching #aphetorgames and searching @aphetorgames.
Instead of a traditional opening ceremony, the organisers created a fully scannable QR Code on West Beach in Llandudno (close to the Games’ location) to allow the public to scan the code to gain exclusive access to Aphetor content (see images attached).
Aphetor Founder, Thode, said: “We wanted to create a sporting series that appeals to Gen Z which meant stripping back how we traditionally consume sport and creating an ecosystem for some of the biggest influencers and creators on the planet to compete, capture their own content, and share it with their audiences on their own platforms.”AphetorGames YouTube channel:@aphetorgames Insta: https://www.instagram.
We look in detail about an event or issue in the Conwy area
Christmas Eve in Conwy has become a tradition for many years now. It started off as a small gathering in the square with everyone meandering over to the castle car park chatting excitedly to each other to wait for Santa and the fireworks and in recent years it has grown to become a HUGE event, with visitors coming from all over the world to join us locals in a very special tradition. TVConwy has been a part of this since we started back in 2014 and have come up with what we think is a pretty good idea of a recipe for a true Conwy Christmas.
Sadly, due to the Covid pandemic all events of this kind have had to be cancelled and Conwy Town Council have had to adapt their usual arrangements with Santa.
Although we, like so many others, are so sad that we can’t be celebrating this special evening with everybody, we wanted to share our recipe with you all.
Let’s hope that next year we’ll be back there again, dancing with Darren and singing our hearts out for Santa.
Have a very merry and safe Christmas from us all here at TVConwy.
