The Welsh Society of Western New England

Croeso (Welcome) to our newly redesigned website. We hope you will like it. Please pardon any evidences of our continuing work as we are still putting the finishing touches on it. We welcome your comments and suggestions at (WEBSITE on subject line).


From February 23 to March 9, 2019, Wales Week in New England launches an annual series of activities and events that celebrate and promote everything that's great about Wales.

Through a calendar of events around St David's Day, it will galvanize existing Welsh communities in New England, building a positive momentum across the area that is distinctly about Wales.

This is the opportunity for organisations through which they can promote their products and services, and develop New England-based audiences, partnerships and connections.

So together, with the best in Welsh business, music, art, food, tourism, heritage, sport, public life and the media, we're promoting a fortnight of events that will collectively shout how good we truly are!

To learn more and see specific events and Welsh-related business promotions you could take advantage of, Visit our Special WALES WEEK IN NEW ENGLAND Page.

Welsh Culture and History

Click on the Red Dragon (Ddraig goch) Welsh flag above to go directly to the page called Welsh Culture and History under the Resources menu item.

Actually, every page of our website reflects Welsh culture and history from Arthur (King Arthur that is) to Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon).

Why "A to Y" and not "A to Z"?   That's because there is no "Z" in the traditional Welsh alphabet!

From Dylan Thomas poetry to Six Nations Rugby, Welsh cakes to Welsh choirs, Welsh slate to Welsh triple harp – and so much more.

And, if you live in western New England, please consider joining us in our many activities.
