Play Development Team

Ysgolion yr 21ain Ganrif - Rhaglen Foderneiddio - Ymgysylltu

We want to give the play sector and everyone working with children and young people what they want, so if you have a training need in play or playwork that we don’t cover here let us know and we will do our best to cater for you.

If you have a group of 7 or more we can run most courses especially for you on a date and venue of your choosing, just get in touch to arrange. (Yes, it will normally still be free!)

Please note: As we are the CONWY Play Development Team we always give first refusal on training spaces to those working or living in Conwy. If there are spaces left on courses we may consider organisations based outside of the county.

Currently taking bookings for all courses. Best Wishes and look forward to seeing you at one of the workshops! Click here for more information

Offer to CVSC Members below circulated on behalf of the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod

At the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod we have been working on ways to increase our engagement with the community in Llangollen and give something back to the people in the locality.

We endeavour to make the Eisteddfod more accessible to community groups and those that are not currently engaged with our event. This includes the offer of complimentary tickets for community groups to give to their members.

This year we are trying a slightly different approach by giving out special offer codes so that the free tickets can be accessed online. We would like to offer CVSC the opportunity to share this online discount code with your members.

Using the code COMMUNITY19 your members will be able to access a FREE FAMILY DAY TICKET, valid Wed-Sat of Eisteddfod week. Simply visit here and select Family Ticket and enter the code when prompted to claim the free ticket.

The number of tickets available on this code is limited and will expire on the 15th June 2019.
