St David’s Day celebrated in the capital

Although it may be a few miles from Wales, London is still a great place to celebrate St David’s Day on March 1st.

Amongst the many highlights, visitors should consider a visit to the Loose Cannon Arches, where there will be a Welsh party with a traditional male voice choir, food and drink.

There will also be an appearance by Welsh comedian Noel James, who has already appeared at Glastonbury, Edinburgh, on the BBC’s The Stand-up Show and Channel 4’s Packing Them In.

Visitors staying in central London hotels will also be able to enjoy a live performance from The Lucky 88’s, who have played on the same bill as a number of Welsh stars, including Tom Jones, Suzy Quatro, the Manic Street Preachers, and Stereophonics.

Festivities at Loose Cannon Arches get underway at 7pm on March 1st and tickets cost £35 each.

For those looking for more family fun, people should head to the London Welsh Centre, which will be hosting an open day aimed at Welsh and English families.

Admission is free of charge and the centre will be open from 11am to 4pm, with a host of traditional food, live music, and plenty of national atmosphere.

March 2nd will end with a performance from several leading voice choirs at 7.30pm in a special ticketed concert. Seats are still available at £25 each and it is one of the highlights of the London Welsh Centre’s calendar.

King’s Cross overland and London Underground station is the nearest to the London Welsh Centre.
