New Venue!

Posted on: March 15th, 2012 by joel

With 71 days to go before kickoff, I’m pleased to announce a lovely new venue for port80 Newport on the 25th of May. The venue will now be hosted by University of Wales Newport in their lovely, new campus building.

Google Maps link to the general area.

Here’s an old Instagram shot with the building behind one of Newport’s bridges – the pedestrian Usk Walkway.


The new venue has come about not only because the University wish to be inolved but because the venue & location solve a few organisationsal problems. For one thing there is an excellent on site canteen. For another thing, the venue is more centrally located in the town, only 10 mins walk from train station, cheap parking nearby etc. The excellent lecture theatre we have booked also gives us increased capacity.


This partnership with the university will also mean than many interested students will also have access to the event. A good plus point for the community at large.


Full details to follow on the new website.

I’ll leave you with some more of my, ahem, Instagram masterpieces…
