Remember tonight is our ever popular quiz night this month with a summer theme. Tickets can be reserved by calling 02920 491220 or through the Eventbright link in the event page attached. All ticket sales go towards The Wallich charity who are helping to reduce the homelessness in Cardiff.
Come and learn how to knit socks – all ages and genders welcome! You can either keep the socks and enjoy the pleasure and accomplishment of creating them or donate them to people who are vulnerable to, or impacted by, suicide. Knitting is known to be great for mental health and the idea is to create social groups where people can learn a new skill, make new friends and generate some sock love.
Materials required: You may have your own ideas for wool and pattern but if not please bring 4ply wool and 2.5mm double pointed needles or circular needles. We will have some spares that we can provide for a donation.
Edgy, Soulful and Heartfelt; this is the music of John Nicholas. With inspiration taken from the likes of Foy Vance and John Mayer, John’s story songs are catchy and relatable and envelope the listener through the textures he creates with his loop pedal.
John had a stellar 2018 winning Firestone’s “Road To The Mainstage” Final and performing across the UK on two headline tours. In addition to this John had airplays and support from BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio 2 cementing him as an exciting up and coming artist.
