Summer of Events: Cancer Research Wales

This summer, Cancer Research Wales is thrilled to be attending some major festivals around the country to connect with communities from across Wales. Our pioneering research has been saving lives, right here since 1966 and we’re looking forward to meeting you!

Everywoman Festival 2024 – 15 June 2024

Meet the team at the Everywoman Festival in Cardiff and take a walk through our giant inflatable bowel, which is scaled up to create a memorable, educational experience! Our unique exhibit is designed to raise awareness about bowel cancer, offering visitors an engaging way to learn about the importance of early detection and prevention.

Royal Welsh Show – 22 to 25 July 2024

We will be attending this year’s Royal Welsh Show in Builth Wells - an amazing opportunity to raise awareness of our mission to unite Wales against cancer. Come and chat to our friendly team of staff and volunteers, learn more about Cancer Research Wales and discover how you can get involved with our work. This year, our stand will feature a pop-up shop where you can browse through and buy clothing from our range of pre-loved quality garments. 

You can also sign up for our fundraising events, our newsletter and pick up an information brochure. Whether you are curious about the latest in research developments or looking for ways to support us – this is an event not to be missed!

The National Eisteddfod of Wales – 3 to 10 August

We will also be at this year’s Eisteddfod at Ynysangharad War Memorial Park in Pontypridd for the full seven days of one of the biggest cultural festivals in Europe – come along to our stand, learn more about our charity and our world-class research including Wales’s first-ever Brain Tumour Research Initiative, meet and chat to our friendly staff and our volunteers and take on our mystery challenge. 

The Eisteddfod is an iconic celebration of Welsh culture and heritage, and as a 100% Welsh charity we are proud to play our part in it. This is a fantastic chance to learn more about our efforts to combat cancer and how you can support us, because collaboration is in our DNA.
