The 2018 Parêd is slightly different to previous events.
It will commence at 1.00pm Saturday 3 March from the town clock, down Great Darkgate St => Baker St => Alfred Place => Corporation St => Llys y Brenin where the Ceremony will be held.
The Ceremony will include music, a short speech by the Mayor of Aberystwyth, the Tywysydd, Ned Thomas and St David’s Grace by David Greany of Aberystwyth’s Catholic Church. The whole event is expected to be over by 2.15.
We’re very grateful to Clwb Cinio Dynion Aberystwyth for their willingness to marshal the parade. They will steward every junction which leads onto the parade’s route and will be wearing hi-viz jackets. Some delay is to be expected as the Parêd makes its way through Aberystwyth.
The Parêd’s organisers, musicians, marshals and Tywysydd will meet at the Old College beforehand before making their way to the town clock by 12.30pm.
