The Welsh Society of Western New England (WSWNE) is dedicated to celebrating and learning about all things Welsh.  We meet at least quarterly and share a meal and an interesting subject or presentation relating to Wales. Many of our members have Welsh heritage or were born in Wales and others are drawn to gatherings through their interest in the country, language and culture.

Our meetings and activities occur at various locations around Western New England. Past WSWNE events have included:

  • Gatherings and luncheons in towns in Western Massachusetts and Connecticut
  • Monthly genealogy research workshops and presentations
  • Welsh language classes
  • St. David’s Day celebrations, with a presenter
  • Christmas Holiday luncheons, with a presenter
  • Welsh Afternoon Teas and a Wine & Welsh Cheese Tasting event
  • Watching Welsh films and Wales' Rugby team play
  • Trips to Welsh events in New York City and other nearby states
  • Annual attendance at the North American Festival of Wales (NAFOW)  http://thewnaa.org/
