madeinroath is a community arts festival based in the heart of Roath, Cardiff. The festival aims to take art out of the gallery and into the community, through an exciting programme of events and activities. madeinroath’s focus is on showcasing the huge creative talent from within the local community, as well as bringing exciting and inspiring art and culture to Roath from further afield.
Our annual festival takes place in October, when we host a week-long extravaganza of events and activities across all creative disciplines, showing the very best of local talent alongside some excellent national and international artists. We believe art and culture can enrich the lives of everyone, and so that’s why a lot of what we do takes art out of the traditional museum or gallery spaces and into the community.
This year’s festival takes place from October 15th - 22nd, and during that time you can expect to wander around Roath and see and experience plenty to excite, challenge, uplift and inspire. You could have a nose around our Open Houses and Studios trail, see some experimental theatre at The Gate, have a dance at a secret alleyway gig or two, visit exhibitions in our beautiful local churches or front gardens, enjoy some comedy at a coffee shop or come to Longer Tables, our special annual street fete. There’s nothing to stop you - all our events are free.
