There will be PLENTY to celebrate St David’s day this week – just contact your local Menter Iaith to see how you can join in with the fun.

Many towns across Wales will have colourful, noisy parades running through them supported by the Menter Iaith local to those towns – how about joining in with the parade in Llanelli or any number of parades in Ceredigion – Tregaron will be a first for many years! Or maybe Denbigh or Wrexham might be nearer to you?

Wales will also be alive with music in every corner of the country, from the traditional Welsh folk music in Cardiff, choral in Swansea and then a gig in Trefin, Pembrokeshire.

Our high streets will also be colourful with window displays in red, white and green with many Menter Iaith holding a competition for the best display. It is a pleasure walking through Pontardawe, Ammanford, Llandysul, Cardigan and Wrexham only to give some examples.

Heledd ap Gwynfor on behalf of Mentrau Iaith Cymru explains:

“Your local Menter Iaith in all parts of Cymru are looking forward to celebrating with their communities. THere’ll be plenty of colour and enjoyment – and plenty of noise too. I’m personally looking forward to walking in a parade waving flags and having a social evening in my local area – I would encourage everyone to contact their local Menter Iaith to see what’s on over the next few days !” 

Contact the Menter Iaith that is local to you in order to see what is going on in your area – to find out where your Menter Iaith is, follow this link:
