In Aberystwyth for Christmas


Whatever the reason – many students often stay in Aberystwyth over the Christmas break. We don’t want anyone to feel alone, so we’ve put together this list of events going on as well as a list of useful contacts. ** UPDATE due to changes in COVID-19 restrcitions we can now no longer hold any physical events


We’ve also created a Facebook group to share updates of events and activities, as well as giving students the opportunity to arrange meet-up with others (in line with government restrictions).
