Celebrate St. David's Day in Monmouthshire

This Sunday (1st March) is St. David's Day, the celebration day for the Patron Saint of Wales. It's a time when Welsh people across the country put on their daffodil headpieces, find their giant fluffy leeks and wonder if they can still squeeze into their Welsh costumes from school. 

Here in Monmouthshire we have a fantastic St. David's Day Concert in the Borough Theatre, Abergavenny with Blaenavon Male Voice Choir (hard to get more Welsh than that!). We also have free entry to all our Cadw sites (Raglan Castle, Chepstow Castle & Tintern Abbey) so you can experience the full history of Wales, for free. Tickets need to be booked though, so make sure to do so!

It's also a good time to celebrate Welsh Food & Drink, and where better to do so than in the Food Capital of Wales? We've given a three course dinner suggestion for this Sunday (including our own Monmouth Pudding), as well as some of our fantastic food & drink producers to truly eat local.
