Flintshire’s St David’s Day celebrations have been established as one of the highlights of the year for some time with Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam looking forward to hosting a programme of events across the county that will bridge both communities and generations.

This year local schools will be performing in several towns between 10 and 11am:

  • Buckley on Monday February 26th
  • Mold on Wednesday 28th
  • and Holywell on Thursday 29th.

We warmly invite you to join the crowd and enjoy the entertainment.

Pupils will also visit care facilities in Flint and Shotton to share the celebrations and fun with residents, which will be a valuable opportunity for people of all ages to learn together and from each other.

The window dressing competition also returns with 6 Flintshire towns committed to competing, so have a wonder during the week to see the colourful displays along the county’s high streets.

Cllr Ian Roberts, Leader Flintshire County Council said: 

“We are absolutely delighted to be working with Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam once again to celebrate St David’s Day.  They have put together this varied programme and provide something for everyone.

We are extremely proud of our heritage and celebrating our Welsh culture on this day is a very special occasion in Flintshire. Dydd Gŵyl Dewi is for everyone who loves Wales whatever their background and whether they come from Wales or not. It is fantastic to see people of all ages and communities coming together to be part of something special”.

These celebrations are a part of numerous events that will take place across Wales to celebrate our Patron Saint’s Day, so use #DewiSiryFflint on social media for information, to share photos, and to follow the event throughout the day.
