Saint David's Day

St David's Day display at SBS Library
Yes it’s our patron saint’s day on Saturday, so let’s eat Welsh cakes, sing the national anthem and wear our leeks and daffodils with pride! As you’d imagine, there are celebratory events going on all over Wales (The Telegraph has a helpful list of some of the main ones), though Bala seems to be the best place to go as cooks there are attempting to make the biggest Welsh cake in the world! There’s plenty going on round Swansea too, though no world record attempts, as far as we know!

Your UWTSD libraries are getting into the spirit of things too, with Welsh-themed displays at Swansea Business School and Townhill Libraries. You’ll find Welsh travel guides and books about our country’s history at SBS and folk tales and fiction at Townhill Library. You’ll also find a selection of the Library of Wales series on the shelves at Townhill, so have a look for those if you fancy some fiction set in Wales. We have language resources at both SBS and Townhill Libraries, so if you’ve ever fancied learning Welsh, why not pick up some books and CDs to help?

Whatever you decide to do on St David’s Day, we hope you have a lovely weekend!
