They also had the opportunity to perform for the First Minister of Wales at an event in the Senedd, and in the Butetown Community Centre.

On Saturday, the choir travelled to the National Urdd Eisteddfod in Llandovery to perform for young people in Wales and to enjoy the festival. They performed with Mared Williams in the Garddorfa as part of a gospel workshop, and then on the main stage where they sang three gospel songs in Welsh to a number of Urdd choirs.

The choir spent one night in Aberystwyth to visit the university, perform on the promenade and visit the National Library.
