Cardiff Student Media Awards 2016 with Premiere Cinemas






The Cardiff Student Media Awards 2016 – hosted on the 30th April in the Great Hall – were a great success. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible, including Premiere Cinemas for sponsoring, Venues and Events for doing a fantastic job, and a huge thank you to Student Media Coordinator Elaine Morgan. We really couldn’t have done this without you!

Thanks are also due to Steve Wilford and all of this year’s Sabbatical Officers, who have ensured we’ve had one of the best years yet as Cardiff Student Media.
