Ceredigion’s different ways to celebrate St David’s Day

Once again this year the Welsh dragon will fly high to celebrate St David’s Day. 

In Ceredigion, many events have been arranged to celebrate St David’s Day, including parades, concerts, ‘eisteddfodau’ and much more. Why not take the on challenge ‘Mas o Ma’: Crwydro Ceredigion’? It’s a virtual version of an escape room, and a chance to learn more about different areas in Ceredigion. Submit your answers on FORMS.https://sites.google.com/hwbcymru.net/mas-o-macrwydroceredigion?usp=sharing

In addition to this, Cered: Menter Iaith Ceredigion have organised a competition to decorate shop windows in towns across the county. Keep an eye out for these displays. Tregaron Town Council have also launched a brand new award to recognise the contribution of local voluntary work in the Tregaron area.

And there are many opportunities for you to join in the parades which have been organised across the county:

  • Aberaeron (for Aberaeron Primary School only) – 01 March 2024 at 09.30 from Aberaeron Primary School.
  • Cardigan – 01 March 2024 at 09:45 from the swimming pool car park.
  • Tregaron – 01 March 2024 at 13:15 from Ysgol Henry Richard.
  • Lampeter – 02 March 2024 at 11:00 from Ysgol Bro Pedr Senior Campus.
  • Aberystwyth – 02 March 2024 at 13:00 from the town clock.

Councillor Catrin M S Davies, Ceredigion Cabinet Member responsible for Culture, said: “The Welsh language is not for one day only but it is nice to have one day that pays attention to the Welsh language and to Welshness and we in Ceredigion can ensure that the language is a source of pride and that our residents, whether they are fluent or new speakers, are proud of our beautiful language. There will be some activity planned to celebrate St David’s Day in your area – so join in and enjoy. The Welsh language belongs to everyone in Ceredigion and we need to use it in every possible situation and speak it loudly and proudly.”

As we celebrate St David’s Day, we remember the words of our patron saint who said ‘Gwnewch y pethau bychain’ (do the little things) and we are proud of his close connection with Ceredigion.
