Friday 2nd August

Trapped on the streets 


Join John Puzey Director of Shelter Cymru and Annie Simmonds Cotter, Cardiff Advocacy Worker to hear about the conversations they have had with people trapped on the streets in Wales in 2018 and the new rights based service that grew out of those conversations. And another chance discuss what you can do to end homelessness in Wales.

Women’s Football Can


Julia Palmer and Flora Farquharson, Women Can

Join us for a whizz through the last 120 years of women’s football, from discussing the Dick Kerr’s Women’s Team and how their popularity led to it effective ban by the FA and the battle to have women allowed to play on FA club grounds until the 1970s, up to the highlights and lowlights of this year’s World Cup, taking in footballing legends like Michelle Akers, Abby Wambach and Joy Fawcett along the way. Hosted by former Welsh international captain and UEFA Women’s Football board member Professor Laura McAllister with talks by Julia and Flora from Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama’s Women Can project.
