Our second year

Wales Week in London had a great jump in the number of activities and events compared to the previous year, which demonstrated how the programme to promote and celebrate Wales in London had captured the imagination of so many people and organisations. With some 81 events taking place and our sponsors / partners growing from 4 to 17, Wales Week in London had very quickly established its place as an annual feature on the London landscape.

The feedback from those who attended events and from the event organisers themselves was terrific - and even the Beast from the East couldn’t dampen Welsh spirits, though it tried very hard to do so!

Once again, we were hugely grateful for all the support from our partners and sponsors, and most delighted with the enthusiasm, the energy and the contribution provided by all the people behind the activates and events that took place. It was a perfect example of Team Wales working brilliantly together and producing something that was far more impactful than the simple sum of its parts.

    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.
