Posted on:   Posted by:

This year Hub Festival took place in Cardiff on Bank Holiday Monday: three days, 12 stages, over 700 artists involved. Womanby St once again lit up with happy smiles of people enjoying art and performance of all kinds.

Rubbish or an art installation? Sadly, Hub festival is yet another event where we couldn’t help but notice how irresponsible people are when it comes to their surroundings and environment.
