John Thomas Ahearn’s long awaited collection of poems

Pomes, Older and Younger, a debut poetry collection from John Ahearn, offers a basket of poems that will stay long after they have been read, poems that manage to smile at the realities of love and life. John Ahearn believes that all the old forms are there to be used in the working poet’s toolbox – that there is a form for every expression. His unsparing modern eye does the rest.

Made in Roath, the festival, is an artist-led, free event which aims to take art out of the gallery and into the wider community, allowing a larger and broader audience to access the wealth of creative talent in our neighbourhood whilst maintaining a standard of excellence, reflecting the contemporary art scene in Cardiff and South Wales.

It showcases the work of emerging and established artists, makers, musicians, writers and performers, who use the whole of Roath as the venue, including domestic, commercial, public and overlooked or disused spaces.

Made in Roath offers residents and visitors an opportunity to engage in the arts through a dynamic programme of exhibitions, residencies, collaborations with community groups, workshops and performances.
