“I’m delighted that Songs of Praise visited our campus during our Bicentenary year” said Professor Medwin Hughes.

“The campus was established as St David’s College by Bishop Thomas Burgess to provide a liberal education for young men training to become Anglican priests. Over the past two hundred years the campus has developed a world-renowned reputation for the study of the Humanities and Inter-cultural and multi-faith education”.

Songs of Praise Producer, Charlotte Hindle said: “We very much enjoyed our visit to Lampeter. We were made to feel so welcome by the staff and the students and we’re really pleased that Songs of Praise could be part of the bicentenary celebrations”.

The bicentenary commemorates the establishment of St David’s College, Lampeter on 12 August 1822 through the laying the foundation stone which marks the beginning of higher education in Wales.
