On the 30th of October 2011, a group of people entered the tredegar hotel in adamsdown with the intention of creating a social centre, from this action (and a chance trip by a bin) the red and black umbrella was found.
Nearly one year on, and to the group’s amazement, the red and black umbrella remains a part of the radical community in cardiff. There have been ups and downs, highs and lows, periods of unrelenting action and crippling stagnation, but it is what it is and we want to celebrate that with you.
So @ 7.00pm Friday 2nd November we’ll be throwing a one year halloween birthday bash.
There’ll be acoustic music from: Daf of KilnABoy, Efa Supertramp, First Bender Since the Boneyard, The Red and Black String Band and some special guests, plus some awesome dancers and performers.
Not to mention, it will also be the unveiling of the prisoner art exhibition, which will be in Cardiff for the month of November. The event is pay what you can, all proceeds will be split between Cardiff ABC, Cardiff Migrant Solidarity and South Wales Hunt Sabs.
It’ll be a dark night, it’ll be a spooky night. Bring your section 666 as someone or something will be present at all times…
