Events for the web industry

happening in Newport, South Wales

The Olympic Torch

Posted on: May 16th, 2012 by joel

On the 25th of May there will be two ground breaking events taking place in Newport. One, we obvioulsy know about,  is our very own amazing web conference (excuse me whilst I blow my own trumpet…so to speak), the other thing is the Olympic Torch will be paying a visit.

As luck would have it, the Olympic torch will be passing through Newport (the first Welsh city it touches) on the very same day as Port80.

Please find attached a PDF giving full information but the key reason I mention this is that this will incur some minor disruption; however, according to this flyer, that should be all done and dusted before 17:00.

On the flyer map, you’ll find the (unmarked) University is alongside the Riverfront building (marked with a 1 on the map).
