Our vision

It’s simple – we want to create noise – as much Welsh noise as possible. 

We want others to know what’s great about being Welsh, and we want them to join us in our celebrations.

Every nation is unique, and each has their own way of commemorating this. Wales Week The North West is our moment, and we plan to use this as a stepping stone to help raise the profile of everything that is awesome about Wales.

About us

Where Wales meets the World, when the World celebrates Wales.

Wales Week Worldwide is an annual showcase of activities and events that celebrate and promote everything that’s great about Wales.

Through a calendar of events around St David’s Day, which galvanises existing Welsh communities in throughout the World, Wales Week The North West builds a positive momentum across the globe that is distinctly about Wales.

This is the opportunity for organisations in Wales through which they can promote their products and services, and develop new regional, national or international -based audiences, partnerships and connections.

So together, with the best of Welsh music, art, food, tourism, sport, business, theatre, comedy, tech, our heritage and the media, we’re promoting a fortnight of events that will collectively showcase everything amazing about Wales!

Who’s involved?

Wales Week was launched in London, founded by two Welsh-based business people, Dan Langford and Mike Jordan – importantly though, the initiative could only achieve what is has because of the tremendous response from the Welsh communities across the World, and the incredible support received from partners and sponsors.

Wales Week in London also owes a huge debt of thanks to the Welsh Government and the Office of the Secretary of State for Wales – working collaboratively and with a shared ambition to promote a modern Wales to the rest of world.

Wales Week in New York was a natural addition to an already successful initiative

In 2019, a Wales Week New York revival was launched and funded by Welsh-American businessman, Ty Francis MBE. This calendar of events around St. David’s Day, galvanizing existing Welsh communities in New York City, Wales Week New York hopes to build a positive momentum across the city that is distinctly about Wales. This is an opportunity for organisations in Wales to promote their products and services, and develop new New York-based audiences, partnerships and connections. So together, with the best in Welsh business, music, art, food, tourism, heritage, sport, public life and the media, it will promote a fortnight of events that will collectively shout how good Wales is! Together with Marc Walby and Gwilym Roberts-Harry his fellow New York Welsh co-founders (New York’s largest Welsh social and business network aimed at supporting Welsh people, and those with Welsh roots) Wales Week New York will bring the New York Welsh community together, support business and the arts, and provide networking and support for those business overseas wanting to expand the US.

Wales Weeks during 2019 also welcomed Paris, Germany, New England and Melbourne
