Celebrating St David’s Day

Wales’s patron saint is celebrated in a variety of ways and this year Sunday 1st March is preceded by the leap year special, aka 29th February, so a special weekend awaits.

In Saundersfoot, their annual Cawl Trail around the village’s pubs, cafes and restaurants begins at midday on Saturday. If you want to go, be prompt – it sold out in less than an hour last year.

In Stackpole, near Pembroke, the Stackpole Singers are performing in the Stackpole Centre on Sunday evening. This event is supported by The National Trust.

Fishguard is the location for the Welsh Cake Challenge, visited last year by over 100 keen tasters. The tour starts at 11am on Saturday.

Further afield, Pembrey holds a Food and Drink Festival over both Saturday and Sunday.

The Croeso Festival is centred around Castle Square, Swansea, where food, families and entertainment are Saturday and Sunday’s focus.

And Cardiff will see the St David’s Day National Parade, which starts at 12.30 on Sunday.

Tenby, always divergent, celebrates 29th February with a film presentation by the RoomsWithAView community group in the town’s Cycle Fit ‘spinning’ workshop, starting at 7pm.

And then there is the universal, individual celebration by the Welsh, donning a daffodil or leek for the day.DAFFSLEEKS
