“The singing was lovely. I loved the combination of spoken and sung and funny. I adore Under Milk Wood”. Jen, Glasgow.

The Coal Exchange is one of the most beautiful and historic buildings in Cardiff, Culley’s Kitchen & Bar still bears many of the Coal Exchange’s original features. The wine cellar is housed within the lift that was once used to transport cash to and from the underground bank vaults.. Today Culley’s provides a cosy and intimate space for this fabulous evening celebrating all things Welsh.
