to transform the building into an integrated centre of heritage, culture, learning and knowledge exchange at the heart of a new cultural quarter in the historic centre of the town. It will provide unique opportunities and benefits for the university, the local community, the region of Mid Wales and Wales. Plans include a museum, art gallery

space, shop and restaurant/cafe. Artist tenancies, functions and room hire for community groups are also intended to form a part of the new life of Old College. The total project could mean a multi-million pound investment phased over the years up to an official opening during the University’s 150th

anniversary in 2022. Dr Rhodri Llwyd Morgan, Pro Vice

Chancellor at Aberystwyth University, said: “We are delighted to be involved in Open Doors 2016, which is co- ordinated in Wales by CADW. This is a fantastic opportunity to explore and enjoy the stories behind Old College, to learn about history of the building and discover more about the exciting proposals for the regeneration. “The subject of one of this year’s

fascinating talks will be ‘The Stones of the Old College Aberystwyth’ when Dr Tim Palmer from the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences will discuss the different varieties of natural stone used to build the Old College. So come along and find out more about this wonderful aspect of our town’s heritage. The other good news is that entry is free and all are welcome.”
