Next CSM Business Club event

You are invited to attend our collaborative CSM Business Club event, showcasing Cardiff Met's business services and the effect its community action has on local businesses.

On Wednesday 18th October 2017, Cardiff Met's Business Club welcomes Simon Doherty from Pipes Brewery in Pontcanna, who will talk about setting up his brewery in the Artisan Quarter, his battle with Pepsi over the name of his beers, and the Cardiff-based community growing project that supplies hops for his special 'Taff Temptress' brew once a year (which includes our campus-based Community Garden!)

Sam Holt, coordinator of the hop growing project and local community growing expert, will also speak about the effect of community action on local food production and business.

There will also be opportunity to network and find out more about what the University can do for you, your business or your studies, with access to exciting pop-up stalls from local businesses.
