CAVC at the Eisteddfod

Cardiff and Vale College has travelled to Abergavenny this week, proud to be inolved in in this year’s National Eisteddfod.

CAVC, in partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University and FSB Cymru is today (05.08.16) holding a special Business Reception in the Eisteddfod’s Pl@aid Restaurant. Wales – an Entrepreneurial Nation features a light lunch and reception featuring Abergavenny based top chef Stephen Terry, entrepreneur Steve Dimmick and PWC'S Emma Owen Davies, and chaired by Ben Cottam of the FSB in front of a host of leading figures from the world of Welsh business.

Also appearing today, CAVC’s top class modern European restaurant, The Classroom, will give a demonstration of the fine dining it offers using only the finest local ingredients. Chef Cindy Challoner will prepare mouth-watering wild Welsh sea bass with Welsh pancetta, girolles and butter mushrooms in a cream sauce.

Even the College’s new £45m City Centre Campus has made an appearance at the Eisteddfod. The wedge-shaped campus in the heart of Cardiff city centre had made the shortlist for the National Eisteddfod’s Gold Medal for Architecture, supported by the Design Commission for Wales and RIBA Wales.

As a result, the campus featured in a showcase of all the buildings shortlisted in the arts and crafts exhibition at the Eisteddfod’s art space, Y Lle Celf, complete with a poem written about it by acclaimed Welsh poet Elis Dafydd.
