The vision for Wales Week

It's quite simple - we want to make noise, as much Welsh noise as possible!

Wales Week London is the largest annual showcase of activities and events that celebrate and promote everything that is great about Wales.

Over a fortnight around St David's Day each year, through a varied programme of activities and events we celebrate our culture and heritage, commemorate our national day, and promote a modern Wales to rest of the world

This is the opportunity for Welsh organisations to promote their products and services, and develop new London-based audiences, partnerships and connections.

The journey so far

The first Wales Week London took place in 2017, where 56 different activities and events took place. In 2018 there were 81, in 2019 over 100, and in 2020 some 136 activities and events helped showcase Wales right across London. Even during the pandemic lockdown of 2021, we still saw 70 online events take place; and when things picked up again in 2022, Wales Week London hosted up to 90 different activities and events. Some 111 events took place in 2023, and this year delivered a programme of 130 activities and events. Details about previous years are available here.
