This is when it all started . . .
For a fortnight around the time of St David's Day, from 27th Feb until 10th March, there were 56 different activities / events hosted around London to commemorate St David's Day, and to celebrate and promote Wales and Welsh organisations.
It was a great success, importantly because of the tremendous engagement and contribution from across the Welsh diaspora in London.
Wales Week in London also attracted some amazing support from both the Welsh Government and the Office of the Secretary of State for Wales, as well as a number of sponsors, whose invaluable contribution ensured we were able to provide effective and regular promotional support for all the individual events / organisations involved.

Ours is a vibrant country with so much to offer – historically, culturally and of course through our diverse range of businesses, and Wales Week in London is a co-ordinated promotion of all that we have to shout about. This annual festival showcases a series of activities that celebrate and promote existing Welsh communities in London, providing an exciting opportunity to raise our profile and create a real buzz.

As a founding partner, UK Government is delighted to support the record number of events taking place around St David’s Day. Wales Week in London 2018 offers a fantastic opportunity to promote the best that Wales has to offer to a global audience - it will be a great success.
