In partnership with Flintshire County Council, Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam annually organises St David’s Day celebrations and this year the celebrations will include a face-to-face element for the first time since the pandemic.

We are happy to reveal that a public celebration will be held in Holywell on Thursday March 2nd 2023 and we warmly invite the whole community to come together to celebrate Wales’s Patron Saint in a fun filled morning.

The will be a parade on the High Street under the leadership of Cambria Band at 10:30am ending at Tower Gardens where artists including Jacob Elwy, Megan Lee and Andy Hickie will be performing.

We will also be announcing the winners of the St David’s Day Window Dressing Competition for Holywell businesses, while also announcing the winners of other Flintshire towns on our social media.

Cllr Ian Roberts, Leader Flintshire County Council said:
