Stuff of interest in Splott, Adamsdown and Tremorfa

What’s happening in the land of the speedbump? Turns out, quite a bit!

I sat at the computer tonight and thought, I’ll just have a quick scroll of social media under my favourite searches (#Splott #Adamsdown #Tremorfa, obvs) to see what’s happening and, lo and behold, it did not disappoint.

This part of the ‘Diff is bursting with brilliant people and projects. There’s so much going on, some paid for, some free.

We sometimes get a bad rap for being the ‘bad bit’ of Cardiff. The bit that comes with a warning or the adjective ‘deprived’ dumped in front of the noun.

Well, to heck with that, I say. Just have a peek at this plethora of positivity and groovy stuff to do (I’m sure that this isn’t an exhaustive list – please get in touch if you have an awesome up-coming event or a cool community project you would like highlighted here):
