Tiger Bay Brawlers vs Helsinki Roller Derby at Talybont Sports Village, Cardiff on 7 December 2013.
On Saturday Tiger Bay Brawlers played host to Helsinki Roller Derby, in an awesome derby double header where both TBB and HRD A and B teams went head to head.
Tiger Bay beat Helsinki by the narrowest of margins in the 2013: A Skate Odyssey tournament back in May so there was a really fun rematch vibe to the night. Both bouts were really impressive nail-biters, with TBB B team and HRD A team taking the wins.

Earlier in the year I was asked by British Council Wales to design a poster and branding for the inaugural Wales International Young Artist Award, which gives young people the chance to have their work exhibited internationally.
After designing the initial poster above asking young people for their submissions, I went on apply the paint pot branding to print ads, banners and finally the trophy itself.
It’s been a pleasure to work with BC Wales and to be involved with such a great arts-based project - congratulations to photographer Andrew Morris, who took home the award from the presentation on Wednesday night at the Radisson Hotel.

On Saturday I combined my love of roller derby with my love of a good road trip by jumping on the Brawler bus to Leeds to take photos at a roller derby double header. Tiger Bs took on the Whip-Its before the Brawlers faced the Rebel Roses.
Bout bouts were brilliant, Cardiff came away with with a double win, and I survived the entire day on a diet of peanuts and sweets - result!

This weekend saw the seventh Swn festival in Cardiff. It’s always an amazing time of year for music lovers in the city - you can wander around for four days, finding new favourite bands, bumping into old friends and ending every night in a sweaty dance-off at Clwb Ifor Bach.
It was great to see local bands like Kutosis and Heavy Petting Zoo playing to packed out venues, and to discover great new music like Gulp and Nadine Shah. Now I’ve had a massive sleep I’ve uploaded my photos - you can see them all on Flickr here.
