Captain Beany’s Bean-a-thon – Sat 2nd April

Captain Beany’s Bean-a-thon – Sat 2nd April

Date: 28 March 2022 | By: Andrea Powell

It has BEAN confirmed!  

We are excited to announce that the legendary Captain Beany will be at Aberafan Shopping Centre on Saturday 2nd April. He will be recreating the iconic World Record he achieved – spending 100 hours in a bath tub of beans!  

You can find Captain Beany at the Centre between 11am and 3.30pm. Make sure you pay us a visit so you don’t miss out on this fun’raising event.  

The famous world record was first set in 1986, and since then, bean-obsessed Captain Beany has become a cultural icon, fundraising for charities such as Children in Need, Red Nose Day, Kidney Research UK and MacMillan.  

The recreation of Captain Beany’s record is in aid of Art Walk Port Talbot, which displays fantastic work from artists such as Banksy, Ame72 and Rarebit, amongst others. The Art Walk is a guided tour of street art located in Port Talbot that spans two miles and can be completed in two to three hours at a leisurely pace.  

Art Walk Port Talbot has its own dedicated downloadable app that includes an interactive map which navigates users between each piece. The Art Walk app is available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, and currently has over 1,000 downloads.  

We hope to see you all there!
