Creative Cardiff is bringing Show & Tell to St Fagans on Sunday, 21 October from 2-3pm in the Oakdale Workmen's Institute, with a focus on Welsh music as part of the St Fagans Museum Opening Weekend

Creative Cardiff's Show & Tell is an event which gives a platform to the exciting range of creative people and projects in the city. It brings together Cardiff’s creative community, from emerging talent to old hands, to hear about their current projects and ambitions. Each of the speakers will give a 10-minute lightning talk. And they'll bring an object. The object might be the source of their inspiration, a tool of their trade or a comfort blanket. The speakers will share their work and explain the importance of the object they've brought along.
