Wales Week Berkshire is delighted to announce a partnership with John Lewis & Partners during Wales Week (22nd February to 8th March 2020) which will see a Welsh Emporium Pop Up Shop at their Reading Store on Saturday 29th February and Sunday 1st March 2020 to celebrate Wales Week Worldwide and St David’s Day.
First appearing in London in the spring of 2017, the Wales Week initiative is the programme of events that celebrate and promote all things Welsh around the time of St David’s Day each year.
And whilst this year in London looks set to be the biggest yet with some 120 activities and events already confirmed to take place across the capital, we are delighted to announce that 2020 will also see the inaugural Wales Week Berkshire; and there are some fantastic activities and events taking place across the county.
Wales Week Berkshire features as part of the wider Wales Week initiative, which will see some 20 or more Wales Weeks taking place simultaneously across the world between 22nd February – 8th March this year.
Wales Week Berkshire was started by Nell Williams, who widely known for her passion for Wales; “her enthusiasm for Wales is infectious”, to which she readily admits there is no cure.
Nell said, “I am delighted to be organising Wales Week Berkshire and look forward to sharing some of the very best of Wales right across Berkshire and beyond.”
Exhibitors at the Welsh Emporium Pop Up Shop include The Preservation Society, Velindre Cook Book, Myddfai Trading Company, Welsh Otter, Alder Style, Shelly's - The Welsh Shortbread Company, Cag Rodwell and more!
