Welsh culture comes to life at the Waterfront this weekend

This weekend the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea will come alive to mark St David’s Day with a mix of music, crafts, daffodils and colourful dragons.

On Saturday 28 February (12pm-4pm), visitors can drop in to enjoy a national anthem sign-a-long with Swansea Male Voice Choir, performances of the hit musical Billy Elliot by Stagecoach Theatre Arts, a popup Welsh bookshop with Oxfam Cymru and plenty of creative crafts including spinning wheel daffodils and the chance to animate a dragon puppet with moveable wings.

There will also be a Vagabondi Puppets and Dragon Walkabout and the culmination of the Mr Urdd flash mob which, following its procession through Castle Gardens, will finish at the Museum.

On Sunday 1 March, the Museum will be filled with the sounds of fiddles, guitars, accordions, bagpipes and step dancing as Welsh folk band Calan perform songs and tunes from their newly released album Dinas at 1.30pm and 2.45pm.

“We’re delighted with the range of activities we’ve got on offer to mark this year’s St David’s Day,” said Events Officer Miranda Berry. “It’ll be a chance for the whole family to enjoy some free Welsh-inspired fun whether you decide to pop in for half an hour or all afternoon!”
