Secret Wars Cardiff! - Wales destroyed England...3-0

Last Saturday we drove down to Cardiff for a Secret Wars (Tag team) rematch - Last time round England (Teck, Dbug and Max) wowed the crowds with their George of the dragon piece....

This time round things didn't go quite as planned! Reeps and Jeba decided on drawing some zombie SHEEP...probably the last thing the welsh wanted to see! After that it was all down hill from there really.

Casey and Hannah (Welsh team) dropped a rather unusual Secret Wars piece but had a solid plan and stuck to it....nice lines and good execution!

6 pints of lager later it was time to watch the England team suffer for their actions - First judge went Wales and then came the crowd vote, The 300 strong crowd all started cheering in sync (WALES, WALES, WALES......) Blasting the decibel machine into a state of shock (121 db on the reader) against Englands 115db.

All in all this was a great and very fun night - really good to see such strong support for Secret Wars over in the green hills of Wales....Met lots of interesting people and artists who were all keen to get involved! Hopefully we can set up a proper monthly down those ends??? Watch this space....





Final wall - England (Left) Wales (Right)



We sacked the camera man - but this video gives you a taste of the atmosphere on the crowd vote...
