What can we expect from Blas? Street Food returns to Roath

Blas street food heads back to the Mack
Where: Mackintosh Sports & Social Club, Keppoch St, CF24 3JW
When: Saturday 30 April from 4:30

Blas street food returns this Saturday (30 April) as part of the Made in Spring festival, bringing Roath and Riverside market favourites and some of south Wales best pop-ups to the Mack.

As well as amazing local food, the Mack bar will be serving real ales, including a selection from Vale micro Tomos a Lilford and there’s Live music from singer/songwriter (and popular city centre busker) Kirk Morgan

They’ll have lots of outside tables and seating – and plenty of shelter in case we get another random snow shower!
