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 at Llancaiach Fawr near Caerphilly.

From Monday, May 25th to Saturday, May 30th, the activities will vary from face painting to quizzes, and from copper workshops to business surgeries.

Throughout the week there will also be an opportunity for visitors to come to the University's stand to print their very own pictures and selfies.   If visitors to the Eisteddfod use #ydrindoddewisant when posting pictures to Instagram or Twitter, they’ll be able to come to the University’s stand to print their pictures and have a copy to take home with them free of charge.

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.
