If you’re attending the Royal Welsh Show this year, pop into the University’s Education Pavilion on the main ring to meet University staff or check out the latest courses and research.

The Pavilion will host a range of activities throughout the week (22-25 July) which will include debates, discussions, receptions and workshops, and an exhibition focusing on Animal and Equine Science.

Aberystwyth University’s Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) also has a marquee in the Countryside Care area of the showground.

Take part in Live Lab demonstrations, understand where food comes, learn what grass and clover varieties are popular with farmers or come to talk to the Advanced Training Partnership team about acquiring further qualifications in the agri-food sector at the IBERS marquee. 

A comprehensive list of all Aberystwyth University events at the Royal Welsh Show can be found here: http://www.aber.ac.uk/en/ibers/events/rws.

Russell Davies, Marketing Manager at Aberystwyth University, says, “The Royal Welsh usually attracts around 200,000 visitors on an annual basis and last year, the Show attracted 227,000 people.

“We’re delighted to be here because it gives us a chance to promote our new courses and discuss our research.  We also welcome those attending to join us for a chat as we want to hear their views and suggestions.”

One of the main events at the Pavilion during the Royal Welsh Show will be a debate on the horsemeat crisis on Monday 22 July at 3pm which will discuss the lessons learnt and the opportunities for the Welsh farming and food industry.
