Celebrating St David’s Day

28 February 2011

Adults in Cardiff can celebrate St David’s day by learning Welsh in two free taster sessions run by the University.

Organised by the Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan Welsh for Adults Centre, part of the School of Welsh, the sessions take place at the Hayes library in the city centre and are being run in conjunction with the St David’s Day parade.

The parade, now in its eighth year, starts at City Hall at approximately 12.30pm on 1st March and ends in the Hayes area of the city. Hundreds of school children dressed up in national costume or Welsh rugby shirts will take part and visitors and office workers are expected to line the streets.

The two 45 minute taster sessions start at 12pm and 1pm will run at the library while the parade congregates outside. The Centre will also celebrate St David’s Day by starting a beginner’s Welsh course at the Buzz Information Shop in Grangetown.

Anyone interested in taking part in the free taster session at the Hayes can register their interest beforehand or turn up at the library on St David’s Day.

To register for the course at the Grangetown Buzz Information Shop, contact the Centre on 02920 874 710 or visit
