Reading & District Welsh Society

Since its foundation in 1931 the Reading and District Welsh Society has provided a focus for those who live in the area who have a love of Wales and Welsh things. The Society provides a focus for its members to discuss Welsh culture and the latest news from home.

Meetings are held once a month with the exception of January, February and the summer months - July and August. The AGM is held in September to select new Society officers. The programme is varied and different every year, as per the wishes of the committee members. The highlight of the year is the St David's Day dinner held as near to the 1st of March as possible.

All meetings are held in English, but there are sufficient Welsh speaking members for discussion over a cup of tea to revert to the mother tongue. So, membership is extended to all, regardless of where their roots lie. Please come and join.

Interested? Then email us or via the "Contact Us" page on the website.
