This year’s Grangetown Festival gets under way this weekend, climaxing in the Fete and Carnival day in Grange Gardens on Saturday 18th June.
The fete – which includes a parade from Courtmead Gardens – has been a constant for nearly 40 years and has been an annual fixture in Grange Gardens since 2001.
Thanks to the efforts of volunteers from Cardiff University, we hope to have a few new ideas and surprises for this year’s event.
