Coleg Cambria Catering students took full advantage of the opportunity to work at the Pavilion during this year’s Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.

Llangollen Musical Eisteddfod

This year marked the 67th International Musical Eisteddfod in Llangollen which celebrates international music and dance. Thousands of international performers and visitors flocked to the site to enjoy competitions and performances as well as take part in workshops and various arts and crafts.

Level 1, 2 and 3 Catering Diploma students worked at the event alongside Chester Racecourse in the Horseradish Section.  They served guests with a delicious buffet and beverages in the hospitality suite.

Sponsors included GHP Legal, Wrexham Lager, Shropshire Star and the Post Office.

Coleg Cambria Level 3 student Joe Gunner said: “Working at the International Musical Eisteddfod has given me an understanding of different cultures. It gave me the opportunity to use all my skills gained at the College and I have even served Terry Waite CBE.”

Coleg Cambria Catering Lecturer Angharad Jarvis said: “The event provided the learners with a fantastic professional opportunity to use all the skills which they have gained here in College to provide excellent service to a wider range of VIP guests at the event.”
