Wythnos Treftadaeth Cymru
By Alan Llwyd
Mae ein hiaith yn ein mwynhad; -yn ein gw'yl
Mae hen gwlwm cariad;
Yn yr hwyl ein parhad,
Ein hanes yn ein huniad.
Welsh Heritage Week
(translation by Sian Frick)
Our language is our please; in our festival
Is the old bond of love;
In the enjoyments is our continuation,
Our history in our joining.
Welcome to the official homepage 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.
WHW will be very exciting this year! For the first time, our
week will overlap with Cwrs Cymraig. We are working on a joint activity during the weekend of July 20th & 21st (the
end of their course, and the beginning of ours). We will still have our extra tour on Saturday during the day.
I urge all of you to consider coming early so that we can join with Cwrs Cymraig for a fun weekend.
Every four or five years, WHW goes “on
the road” to Wales. Read this article to get a feel for how wonderful it can be!
The 2012 course was held at the Colorado
School of Mines, in Golden, CO. For more details, click here.
