WHAT’S ON OUR RADAR THIS MONTH.


SOUTH WALES SECRETS #1: ? The Junket Club


Carl Chapple reveals his favourite haunt in our new series


The Junket Club is Cardiff’s number one nomadic comedy showcase. Established in 2008 by Lisa Heledd Jones and Benjamin Partridge, it succeeds brilliantly in its twin aims of delivering the best of UK comedy in unorthodox, ever-changing venues, and raising money for charity.


Junkets take place every few months in different locations around the city, and have so far featured shows such as Josie Long’s All The Planet’s Won- ders (Shown In Detail), Ben Moor’s Coelacanth and Tom Wrigglesworth’s Edinburgh-nominated Open return letter to Richard Branson. Compered by the wise and occasionally-bearded Benjamin Par- tridge, there are always fun things for the audience to get involved in between sets, with prizes to be won and tea and cake to be enjoyed.

BUZZ 08


Venues have included a tiny planetarium, a huge yurt and a medium-sized church, as well as a painter’s studio, the National Museum Of Wales and an Arriva Trains Wales railway carriage (in mo- tion, and still occupied by one bemused commut- er). Audience members receive hand-made tickets giving details of where to meet, though never quite know what to expect beyond that, which is all part of the fun. I don’t know where or when the next Junket will be. It’s a secret.


The Junket Club is a delight, and I defy you to find anything else like it.

Urban Outfitters and more move in to St David’s


In a boost for sales of mous- tache wax and statement glasses all over the city, sellers of hipster rags Urban Outfitters will be opening a new store in Cardiff towards the end of this year. The stockists of names like American Apparel, Nudie Jeans and Cheap Monday will doubtless be received with typical ambivalence by the Buffalo crowd, hungry for the label du jour but less desperate to see everybody else hijacking their wardrobe. That’s not all, either. The St David’s Centre is currently enjoying a flurry of investment, with All Saints ex- panding into the unit next door and doubling in size. Republic (pictured) is upsizing too, with a brand new 9000 square feet store on the upper level of the vast shopping centre.Monsoon trumps that with a new 10,500 square feet store also on the upper level, and the perenni- ally popular Ed Hardy has also just confirmed for a late 2010 opening.
