The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is offering a huge range of activities for people of all ages at its stand at the Urdd Eisteddfod which this year takes place in Flint.

From Monday, May 30h to Saturday, June 4th, the activities will vary from business quizzes to rap workshops, and from fitness testing to life drawing.

Throughout the week there will also be an opportunity for visitors to come to the University's stand to see our special van and to take part in the Camper Karaoke! The University’s Formula Renault racing car will also be on the stand and visitors will have the opportunity to sit in the car and find a more information about this special vehicle which is used by students studying Motorsport Engineering at the University’s campus in Swansea.
