Clwb Ifor Bach Mawr

Less than two years ago, the fate of Cardiff's prime music hub was under very serious threat, and the rallying cry was "Save Womanby Street". The campaign was successful, and now the cry seems to have changed to "Take over Womanby Street" with the news that Clwb Ifor Bach is set to expand into the currently derelict building next door.

The fact that the venue appears to be in such good health comes as some consolation given the closures of Buffalo and (most recently) Gwdihw, with the latter shutting its doors on Wednesday.  Whether it will be reborn in a new location remains to be seen, but the fight to preserve the historic buildings on Guildford Crescent from demolition goes on.
