Celebrating Made In Roath 2015

CPS offer

It’s fair to say we have been well and truly ‘Roathed’, which is one of four poems chosen to be transformed onto our canvas bags for this year’s Made In Roath festival.

Totes in a window

We’re so proud to once again be invited to take part in the celebration of local community art that is Made In Roath. In its 7th year, the festival promises to engage both young and old in everything from theatre to upcycling. If you have the time, we’d love you to come and read the seven fantastic poems which made the final cut for this year’s festival – or take a look at them further down the page. They’re written by local Cardiffians about our beloved city and are currently taking pride of place in our Albany Road window.

We’ve donated 200 limited edition canvas shopping bags to this year’s festival, with all proceeds going towards sustaining and enhancing Made In Roath. The bags are available to purchase either inside our office or on the street stalls during the weekend celebrations – priced at just £3 each.
