Important Infomation


What is St David's Day? Also known as the Feast of David, it is the annual celebration of the patron saint of Wales - Saint David. Our 2022 campaign gave students the opportunity to engage with and experience Welsh culture and language through food tasting, live music from Band Pres Llareggub, and more!


Why do we celebrate it? It's not a national holiday (yet), but we celebrate it because we have our own culture, language and heritage separate from the rest of the UK.

Did you know that Cymraeg (Welsh) is one of the oldest languages in the world? Or that Swansea had the world's first passenger railway service? We have plenty to celebrate and a fascinating history to commemorate!


When is it celebrated? Observed on the 1st of March every year, it is a time for celebrating all things Welsh - eating cawl or rarebit (no rabbits involved), listening to Bryn Fon, watching Pobl y Cwm, and wearing traditional Welsh dress.

OK, we're exaggerating there - while it is a time to celebrate Welshness, you're likely to see parades, music events, and if you walk through Castle Square you might even see the water running red. You are probably going to see a lot of daffodils and leeks, though.
