Made in Roath: Exchange in Roath

Exchange in Roath is essentially a giant swap shop event run in partnership with Green City Events, Cynefin Cardiff, Made in Roath, YMCA and Cardiff Council. It is funded by the Big Lottery.

The event is split in to two main parts: the GIVE element and the TAKE event.

People can bring their unwanted (but still usable) stuff to a large drop off container which will be situated next to the Gate Arts Centre on Keppoch Street. It will be open Monday 13th – Friday 17th October between 5 – 7pm. People who bring stuff will be able to collect points (to exchange for items at the event) and might even get a piece of cake (give and cake – haha).

Exchange in Roath

Come and take stuff on Saturday 18th October between 11:30 – 3:30pm inside the Gate Arts Centre, Keppoch Street, Roath. Join up-cycling and re-use workshops, print new designs on old clothes, see installation artists in action and help out with some pedal-powered disco.

This event is free and you don’t need to give in order to take. Please DON’T bring ‘white goods’, VHS tapes, broken items or rubbish.

The types of things you can bring are: books, CD’s/DVDs, clothes, toys, tools, garden items, plants, small electrical items, kitchenware, small furniture and bikes.
