Take a #Selfwich with our walk-in packs and share on social media to win one of two £100 shopping trips
It is set to be a week to remember at The Royal Welsh Show for Harper Adams University.
This year there are lots of amazing activities across the whole show to get involved with Harper Adams University; in the Harper Adams Pavilion, the Livestock Complex, the Cattle Ring and further afield at the Wales YFC Young People’s Village. Here is a flavour of what to expect from Harper Adams over the week of The Royal Welsh Show.
A Show selfie is obligatory. At the Harper Pavilion and Wales YFC Young People’s Village be prepared to say ‘cheese’ or whatever your filling is, as you jump inside a giant food packet and take a #sandwichselfie. Uploading to social media gives you the chance of winning one of two £100 Love2Shop vouchers.
Another photo opportunity is with the Harper Adams Motorsport Team’s M-Sport Ford Fiesta R2 National car, which will be on display all week at the Harper Pavilion. The car has recently come back from the Nicky Grist’s Stages of the British Rally Championship and should feel at home in Wales, home of the FIA World Rally Championship.
In the Harper Pavilion, Hands Free Hectare and Chips on Slugs are showcased –two interactive research exhibits. Beyond the Pavilion at the Livestock Complex Agri-Lab visitors can learn about cutting edge agricultural engineering projects Yellow Gold, Drone Technology and the Big Bale, as well as more from Hands Free Hectare.
In the Cattle Ring the university continues to sponsor the Fitzhugh Dairy and the Dairy Young Handlers Cattle competition. The university’s show team looks forward to the judging and presentation of prizes to the winners.
Harper Adams University is the lead sponsor of the Wales YFC Young People’s Village, the entertainment arena run by Wales YFC near to the showground. Big name acts this year include Radio DJs Greg James, Scott Mills, Matt Edmondson, Huw Stephenson and many more acts.
Simon Pride, Director of Marketing and Communications at Harper Adams University, said: “Sponsoring the Young People’s Village has always felt like a natural partnership to us and we are delighted to provide continuing support. Young Farmers, just like the Harper Adams community – and of course there are many overlaps – like to work hard and play hard, so it is our pleasure to help make sure the young farmers of Wales continue to have this amazing opportunity to let their hair down each evening during the Royal Welsh Show.’’
Staff and students from the university will be available at the Harper Adams Pavilion on avenue K throughout the show and would be delighted to welcome visitors including past, present and future students, prospective students and their families, industry representatives, friends and anyone interested in the work of the university.
