The DEPOT, who have established themselves as one of the biggest entertainment brands in Cardiff, have opened the doors to their new 22,000 sq.ft. venue based in a former Lyndons Scaffolding unit on Williams Way, Curran Embankment.
The move has increased the venue’s capacity by 25% and created 10 new jobs, growing the DEPOT’s team of permanent staff to forty, and allowing the venue to put on more live music and entertainment events.
The DEPOT started life as a pop-up street food venue after being granted a temporary three-month licence at the original premises in late 2014. It was the brainchild of then 23-year-old Nicholas Saunders, who later gained planning permission for the site to stay open for a further four years.
Since then, the brand has hosted a wide variety of events, including food and drink festivals, street food events, vintage fairs, weddings, Christmas parties, Bingo Lingo, immersive theatre productions and corporate conferences.
The new site kicked off at the weekend with a sold-out Bingo Lingo event on Friday night, and a Wales vs Italy Six Nations fan hub on the Saturday.
