What are YOU doing this weekend then, eh? We’ve got a couple of Cardiff picks for the weekend if you’re searching for inspiration. If there’s anything else on that we’ve missed, please comment below!
Cardiff Food Festival – Cardiff Bay, Friday Saturday and Sunday. GO EAT SOME CHEESE! Event info here
Roath Rec World XI exhibition ends this Sunday 13 July
Cardiff photographer Dan Green has had a great exhibition of international footballers up in the Roath MADE gallery for the past couple of weeks. And when we say international, we mean the people who play Sunday leagues at Roath rec. They come from all over! It’s a great exhibition and MADE (formerly Milkwood) is a lovely venue, so make sure you go and see the exhibition before it ends this Sunday.
