Are you planning on attending the Urdd Eisteddfod in Cardiff Bay this year?

The Physiotherapy Careers blog team will there to meet you between 10-11am/2-4.30pm on Tuesday 28th May. Our Mascot, Ffiz will also be tweeting about being there all day!

The Urdd Eisteddfod is a Welsh national youth festival celebrating music, art, drama and literature. It is held every year in a different location around Wales. The festival is a celebration of the Welsh Language but also welcomes learners and newcomers (and those keen to embrace welsh culture!) with open arms. It runs from Monday the 287th of May until Saturday the 1st of June, and this year is being held in Cardiff Bay. You might recognise Mister Urdd- the Urdd’s mascot, from other festivals and sporting events around Wales.

Over 15,000 children and young people from many schools and groups across Wales compete in numerous competitions to prove they are the best! Every year the ‘Maes’ – which is the welsh word for field- is open to visitors offering food, live music, activities, welsh produce and arts and crafts- as well as stands for Welsh companies to talk about what they do.

We invite you to come and meet Ffiz the Physiotherapist, our mascot who will be in attendance as well as working physiotherapists, Natalie and Gwyneth.

We will be located in the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol stand between 10-11am/2-4.30pm on Tuesday 28th May and will be available to answer your questions about careers in Healthcare; including Physiotherapy! You could also join in Ffiz’s fun physiotherapy challenges.

The ‘Maes’ opens daily and Tickets for entry to the can be purchased HERE or on the day and are priced from £8 for children and £16 for Adults. Children under the age of 4 enter for free and there are concessions for students and unemployed people. Camping is available nearby (For more information about accommodation please click here).

We hope to see you there!
