How Cardiff was made


On 31st October, Victoria Rogers from the Cardiff Story will be presenting a lecture called ‘How Our City Was Made’ in the Mansion House which has a history of more than 100 years.

The lecture will be mainly focus on how the expansion of Cardiff’s population during the 19th century and early 20thcentury helped to  create Cardiff we know today. “People need to know more about the city they live in,” Victoria said.

The Mansion House, located on Richmond Road, is the official residence of the Lord Mayor of Cardiff.

Victoria is a Museum Officer, who leads the  collections,    learning and research team in the development of the  Museum’s content. She has a good knowledge of Cardiff’s  history and loves the stories of how Cardiff became the city  we know today.


The audience will not only be absorbed in the almost 120 years of history, see the superb, original interior of the old Mansion House, but also enjoy the traditional Welsh cakes and drinks. In fact, this is the last of a 3 series lecture in Mansion House.
