Like the year I said I wanted to learn how to drive but I didn’t and the…

Rehearsal Space

Does anyone know of any free rehearsal space in Cardiff?

I start rehearsals for my solo show on the 8th Jan and am finding it really difficult to get rehearsal space. I don't have funding for the show and have only been given one weeks free space from the venue so really don't have any budget what so ever

Just wanted to see if the anyone knew of anywhere
