SOUTH WALES SECRETS #13: Jacobs Market

Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens shares with Buzz one of his favourite places in South Wales

“Jacobs Market is that huge old red brick building behind the train station. It’s a small part of the old Cardiff that’s still there in our city centre,” explains Huw. Originally situated on Mill Lane, the market moved to its current location in the 1980s, and now with all three floors open from Thursday until Saturday, Jacobs Market (or Jacobs Antiques Mar- ket to give its full name) is a true treasure trove of historical memorabilia, antiques, furniture, vintage clothes, comics, photography, art and much more. Often at very reasonable prices, there’s always a bargain to be sniffed out, and the dealers don’t mind bartering a little bit if you’re up for the chal- lenge. “It’s got some brilliant stalls,” continues Huw.



“Although I don’t necessarily buy much there, it’s a glimpse into another world.” Located behind Car- diff’s Central Station and the new Maldron Hotel at the end of St Mary Street, Jacobs is an oasis of calm away from the frenzy of shoppers found on Queen’s Street or St David’s Centre. Browse at your leisure and dig deep for the real finds. You may well come away with something unique and very special.

Perhaps surprisingly, the market also has a great little cafe favoured by many visitors. “Check out the Off The Rails cafe too for an amazing break- fast,” concludes Huw. If it’s antiques you’re after, Jacob’s Market is the ultimate place to find a bargain.

The University Of Glamorgan’s Music Academy has launched a brand new Foundation Degree In Music Industry Entrepreneurship at the ATRiuM campus in Cardiff. The course, which takes 15-18 months to complete, begins in September, is part-time and allows participants to stay in employment and complete the course via face-to-face and distance learning.

Empowering students with essential music industry knowledge and important entrepreneurial skills, the course will help participants position their business competitively within the local and global music industry. Places on the course are fully funded provided candidates live in the convergence area of Wales and comply with the Music Academy’s criteria. Seventy five Full bursaries will be awarded over the next three years. Project director of the foundation degree, Dr Paul Carr is particularly excited to see the launch of this course: “Not only does this initiative offer a means to feed into the income generation of an important area of the creative and cultural industries, but also, for the first time, practitioners within the music industry can gain academic credit for the experience they currently have, in addition of what they are currently doing.”
