Parêd 2016 – biggest yet!

Aberystwyth’s 2016 St David’s Day Parade will be held at 1.00pm Saturday 5 March and follow the same route as in all previous years.

This will be the Parêd with most events ever.

Gwilym Bowen Rhys will lead the Parêd as piper. He will be followed by the artist, Mary Lloyd Jones who is this year’s Tywysydd (guide). Following her will be members of Aberystwyth’s different choirs who will sing as they parade to the sound of Aberystwyth Silver Band. Keeping up the pace and marching spirit will be the Cambria Band from Mold – who rejoin us since their first popular appearance at the first ever Parêd in 2013.

The Ceremony at Llys-y-Brening (the ‘old Kind’s Hall’) will be led by BBC Radio Cymru presenter, Geraint Lloyd and Lyn Lewis Dafis will give the blessing. There will also be a special performance by Mr Phorumla.

During the morning, harpist Carwyn Tywyn who’s originally from Aberystwyth but now lives in Burry Port, will perform on Sgwâr Owain Glyndwr and also at Caffe MGs. There will also be a host of free events and activities for children in Welsh, but a warm welcome to all kids and young teenagers at the Old College, organised by Cered, Ceredigion Language Initiative group.

After the Parêd join us for a free gig with Gwilym at the Llew Du pub on Bridge St. He will be followed by an open folk session – bring your instrument!

There will be a special St David’s meeting at Morlan centre on Sunday morning.

All this is just a bried discription – keep an eye on this website, or better still, follow us on Twitter @GwylDewiAber and Facebook /ParedGwylDewiAberystwyth for the latest updates. Events and things can change!

It’s time we celebrated St David, our unique language and traditions!
