Betty Campbell – A Journey through Butetown

Who was Betty Campbell? And what was so special about her home, Tiger Bay? Learn about the first historical Welsh woman to be celebrated with a statue.

From building the docks in the 1860s, two world wars, the 1919 riots and numerous phases of building, demolishing and rebuilding, join Betty as she shares a history lesson about a small area of Cardiff which played an important role in Welsh history over the last two hundred years.

People. Community. Cardiff. Welcome to Tiger Bay!
