Following last year's success, Glynllifon staff will be at the Caernarfon Food Festival again this year to give all visitors a taste of what goes on at the agricultural college. Our staff will be happy to help anyone who has an enquiry on the day or just wants to see the animals from the farm.
Caernarfon Food Festival is a food lovers' paradise, with freshly cooked treats to sample and take away throughout the day. It's not just artisan food and drink stalls that will be present on the day: jewellery, clothes and craftwork sellers will be there too providing something to keep everyone happy. This year, the festival will take place in its usual spot in Caernarfon town centre on Saturday 11 May.
As in previous years Glynllifon College will have a marquee at the event and will, of course, be full of all things agricultural. There will be a variety of animals in the tent including sheep, piglets, rams and calves. GLLM staff will be putting on various workshops and demonstrations: our Foresters will help you make your own birdbox, which you can then take home, there will be a fun dog agility show, where you can pick up some dog obedience tips and tricks, and one of the highlights of the show is World Champion shearer and Glynllifon staff member Elfed Jackson who will be leading the way in our popular sheep-shearing demonstrations.
Our giant deckchair will be put up to lounge on, a quad bike to sit on, a virtual welding 'have a go' activity - providing something for the whole family to enjoy! We will offer college branded freebies and information on our short and full-time courses from the stand.
There is no charge to take part in any of these activities on the day and people of all ages and abilities are welcome to have a go.
If you would like more information on the wide range of full time and short course agricultural qualifications Glynllifon offers, or if you just love animals, please pop over to our marquee and say hello!
