The Fringe

At lunchtime, there are fringe meetings held by the Countryside Alliance, the University of Cardiff  on local government (which, at the time of writing, looks like it has an all make panel), health and social care and the Federation of Small Businesses.

There’s also a mid-afternoon fringe from the Electoral Commission.

The social

I bought my ticket to this because it said:

Saturday evening social event

£15 per person, includes curry and a pint (vegetarian and soft drink option available)

There is no mention of karaoke, which I later found out takes place. I’m a bit scared now…
