The Wales-Chongqing Cultural Week is underway and there are free events in Cardiff to get involved with to mark the celebration.

The Chongqing Municipality in China has a sort of twinning arrangement with Wales, called a Memorandum of Understanding. There's more info on the Welsh Assembly Government website if you want to find out more.

To celebrate this relationship a number of events have been organised to take place during the Wales-Chongqing Cultural Week, which runs until Monday 8 August.

The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama are staging a number of performances by the Chongqing Acrobatic Troupe, taking place today, Friday 5 August, at 7pm; Saturday 6 August at 3pm and 7pm, and on Monday 8 August at 7pm.

What's more, they're free of charge! The events are ticketed though, so for more information and to book yourself a place contact the Royal College's box office directly on 02920 391391.

There will also be demonstrations of traditional arts by artists from the region of Chongqing, including wood carvers and leaf, syrup and sand painters, at the National Museum Cardiff in Cathays Park between 10am and 5pm on the weekend.

Take a look at some pictures on the Visit Wales blog.
