Story: Lauren Orme - Cardiff Animation Nights

Author: Lauren Orme

I’m an animator and I started Cardiff Animation Nights in 2014. For a long time I was running it on my own, until I met this guy called Chris Wright who’s also an animator. He just came along to the event one night and offered to pitch in and help sometime if I needed it.

Now there are six of us on the team and it’s thrown us all together in a relationship that you don’t tend to get with normal friends – these events are a lot of work and as a team we’ve have been through thick and thin together, getting each event up and running and it really brings you closer together.

Now the Animation Nights are in Kongs in Cardiff and they’re really popular – we get at least 100 people at each event and I couldn’t do it without the team. I love it!
