Springtime In Cardiff

, / 4233

Springtime in Cardiff is a pretty special time. On my travels around our great city I love seeing the daffodils popping up and the warmer weather seems to put a smile on our faces – spring fills us with optimism.

Nick Collins has us covered…
In this issue of City Life, I think there’s much to make us smile; our beautiful cover shot by Sian Owen is a dish by Nick Collins who has recently opened The Pickled Radish restaurant in Llandaff. Nick already has a successful catering business (Grate Catering) and this is the baby sister restaurant to The Pickled Radish in Laleston in The Vale.

City Life Cardiff’s Big Day Out…
Just before going to press we enjoyed a fabulous day out test driving the beautiful Maserati Quattroporte and Ghibli after a special presentation at the newly refurbished Motorline Maserati showroom. We drove up through the valleys and Brecon Beacons and were treated to a superb lunch at the renowned Walnut Tree Inn near Abergavenny – great fun and a truly special day.

Shop Local…
As usual, City Life is packed with great little independent businesses and, I have to say, I love meeting them. I know I bang on about it, but it’s our small independents that give such great character to our capital so please buy from them when you can.

Once Upon A Time…
Beyond The Border returns to south Wales this summer; a wonderful and vibrant three-day festival of stories and music from Wales, and across the world, that will take place from 1-3 July – it’s an amazing family day.

We’re very sociable…
There’ll be much to see and do this spring so please check in with us on twitter (@CityLifeCardiff) and Facebook.

Whirr, click, create…
You’re looking at our newly designed, responsive website thanks to the clever people at Cog Creative ( Please add it to your favourites as we’ll be updating frequently.

Spine quote (look at the edge of our magazine)…
Our spine quote this issue is from The Tragedy of Coriolanus by William Shakespeare: “What is the city but the people? True, the people are the city.” I couldn’t agree more.

Hope you have a spring in your step this season, see you again in the summer.
