Grey skies, growling winds and puddled pavements can only mean one thing – our brilliant summer is finally over. But just because the sun’s taken its hat off doesn’t mean we have to clear our diaries until next June! There’s still loads of stuff going in and around Cardiff over the coming months, it’s just that most of it will be taking place indoors, or at least under cover, including the return of the brilliant Bongo’s Bingo to Tramshed, and the Welsh Beatbox Championship 2018.

As usual we’ve made a list of the very best things happening in Cardiff this week. Take a look and see what tickles your fancy.

It’s On – Friday 21st
