PUBS-Farewell to The Vulcan

Whilst everything around it has rapidly changed there was always one blot* on the ever-changing landscape of Cardiff. * Inthemindofthegreedydevelopers In my eyes not really a blot but a distinguished difference encapsulating the history of a now-lost Cardiff – which is now located on quite a lucrative piece of land on the ever-sprawling City Centre […]

GRAFITTI-New work in Cathays and Roath

It was time to take another trawl around the ‘creative’ areas of Cathays and Roath (ok it’s where all the students live and they seem to accept and produce street art a lot more than the rest of Cardiff!) This time beginning at Cathays Community Centre and some amazing pieces from the locals including a […]

PHOTOS-Ant and Dec at Britains Got Talent auditions

ITV hit talent show Britains Got Talent held auditions in a very cold Cardiff Bay in late January.

RUGBY-It’s all starting to get a bit exciting!

Earlier walking through Cardiff City centre and it just dawned on me how significant this whole rugby thing is! Shivers were sent down my spine the more I thought about it. This is the first time since the inaugral Rugby World Cup in 1987 that Wales have progressed to the semi-final stage. This time everything […]

PHOTOS-Caerphilly Castle

The first bike ride up the Taff Trail for a while and it brought me out in the small town of Caerphilly (no its not a disease!) I hadn’t actually been to Caerphilly Castle since school days (yep it’s gotta be about 20 years since my last visit there!) Initially I felt totally dis-orientated as […]

PHOTOS-Cardiff Harbour Festival

On the weekend beginning Friday 26th August, 2011 the Cardiff Harbour Festival began a full Bank Holiday weekend of activities around Cardiff Bay. (The old Tiger Bay to the rest of the world!)

GRAF-‘Enta’ legal art opposite Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff.

There is a small legal wall featuring various pieces of art opposite Chapter Arts Centre in Canton, Cardiff.

TV-Dr Who Filming in Cardiff

Filming for the latest series of the BBC sci-fi drama Dr Who has been taking place on the 7th and 8th of March in Cardiff City Centre. The numerous facility trucks were all parked up at the Millennium Stadium (DB Unit) – just about as close as they could get to the Wharton Street filming […]

PHOTOS-Canal Parade, Butetown.

Taking a different route back from Cardiff Bay and veering down a slightly dodgy-looking side-street called Canal Parade. (Someone crossed off the obvious letter on the sign for humourous effect – and yes i still titter nearly everytime I see it!) The street didn’t look particularly inviting and looked quite run down, with some new […]
