Going Underground

Hidden Cardiff uncovered on the Tube with Tanni-Grey and Jarman

A Welsh language adaptation of the iconic I Loves The ‘Diff Cardiff Underground Map is being launched today (28 June).

“When the idea of having such a map to raise money for the Eisteddfod was suggested to me, I was immediately keen. I think it’s a great idea. It’s good to know the efforts that the illustrious team has gone to has not only ensured linguistic accuracy but also added much cultural flavour. I hope to include notes on the various stations on the ilovesthediff.com website to explain the reasons for the names of various stops!”

”The map tries to put the Welsh-language names for many of Cardiff’s streets and sights literally on the map but does so in a playful way. It also tries to uncover some of the city’s hidden Welsh past and bring it to the surface. The capital has at times been slow to recognise its varied linguistic heritage and there is always a risk that some of its rich past could be forgotten. This beautiful map helps rework that history whilst also raising vital funds for the National Eisteddfod.”
