Swansea University

Our Wales hub features creative and interactive activities on a diverse range of subjects. Be transported to the magical realm of Egyptian mummies and friendly and menacing demons, uncover family histories relating to the British Empire, make faces and stories, dress up in 1920s clothes, become a film critic, take multilingual snaps, and even have a medieval makeover. Audiences can join poets Simon Armitage and Daljit Nagra, experience an evening of Welsh national football fever with director Jonny Owen, or discover lost and new voices in the multilingual city of Swansea.
