March 2024

At 12 noon on Friday 1 March 2024, we will be celebrating St David’s Day, Patron Saint of Wales at the MK Rose. We are delighted to welcome, Linda Watkins who will sing the Welsh national anthem and lead an opportunity to learn to sing in Welsh. There will also be readings from Welsh poets read by students from Arts1 and traditional daffodils and Bara Brith will be distributed. 

This is a free event and all are welcome to join us to wish each other a ‘Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus’ – ‘Happy St David’s Day’ in Welsh.

The Milton Keynes’ Rose includes a pillar to celebrate 1 March as St David’s Day. St David being the only native-born patron saint of the countries of Britain and Ireland.
