Wythnos Treftadaeth Cymru
By Alan Llwyd
Mae ein hiaith yn ein mwynhad; – yn ein gw’yl
Mae hen gwlwm cariad;
Yn yr hwyl mae ein parhad,
Ein hanes yn ein huniad.
Welsh Heritage Week
(translation by Sian Frick)
Our language is our pleasure; – in our festival
Is the old bond of love;
In the enjoyment is our continuation,
Our history in our joining.
Welcome to the official home page of Welsh Heritage Week! Welsh Heritage Week is a week-long course on everything Welsh, including: language lessons, folk dancing, clogging, hymn singing, harp lessons, Welsh literature, and so much more.
