AberDewi celebrations – February 28th

We are organising a festival to celebrate St David’s day, of living in Wales, the Welsh language, and to enjoy the bilingualism, and multi culturalism of what is modern day Wales. This will take placeon Saturday February 28th 2015, in Swansea city centre. This will be aimed at children and thefamily. The event will continue later in the evening watching Wales live in the big screen. It will be
colourful, fun, noisy, and participative.  This will be advertised shortly in the Evening Post(with which we are working), and S4C, who will be filming the event on the day.

You can participate as an individual, or a group. Whatever, it will be an interactive event and wehope that you will want to be part of this, taking part of what is a ‘SPECIAL DAY FOR US ALL
