Attended Oktoberfest here under a massive tent. It fit a whole bunch of people which made for a great time. A great space for this kind of event.

The Roald Dahl Plass is the focus of all outside activities in the Cardiff Bay area, currently there is a funfair and a simulated beach occupying the oval basin and the surrounding area. The buildings around the Plass include a number of bars and restaurants.
