Wales YFC are pleased to announce that Harper Adams will be supporting the Young People’s Village once again.
The Young People’s Village is an event that takes place during the week of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show, and will see more than 15,000 partygoers descend upon the entertainment and camping site on the outskirts of Builth Wells.
Harper Adams University, in Shropshire, is the UK's largest centre of higher education for rural, land, animal and food-based studies and the first university in the country dedicated to these sectors.
Speaking on behalf of Harper Adams, Lorraine Westwood, Director of Marketing and Communications said;
“Harper Adams University is delighted to be sponsoring the Young People's Village for the third year running. For us this is the perfect partnership as not only are many of our past and present students members of the YFC but as organisations we share many of the same values and interests. We are very much looking forward to this year's event.”
Wales YFC’s Events Chairman, Tom Bevan, went on to say how Harper Adams’ support will benefit the Young People’s Village;
"Wales YFC are very grateful for the support Harper Adams has given us once again for this year’s Young People’s Village. The Young People’s Village this year is bigger and better with the introduction of an improved village green, improved toilet/shower facilities, WIFI and improved CCTV throughout the site to make it the safest and best place to stay during the Royal Welsh Show Week! None of this would be possible without the support from Harper Adams University."
The launch of this year’s Young People’s Village will take place on the 1st March with tickets available from the Young People’s Village website www.youngpeoplesvillage.org.uk
