Celebrating St David’s day at Tan Rallt!
1st March 2016
The 1st of March is upon us which means one thing- It’s St David’s day! Here at Tan Rallt we are located in North Wales which means we celebrate St David’s day in style and make sure those daffodils are looking their best for the occasion.
St David is the Patron Saint of Wales and it was thought he used to perform miracles on other Saints, including restoring their sight! It has been said that St David also went on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and met an Archbishop, where the word spread about his talent. It was also rumoured that St David was the Nephew of King Arthur!
At Tan Rallt, we have made sure that the Daffodils are out, the Bara Brith is baking and there is at least one leek on show! Throughout Wales, many celebrations are commencing including the annual Llandudno parade where you are sure to see North Wales at its finest surrounded by the beautiful North Wales coast. Other Welsh events that are taking place in the area are the Wrexham and Aberystwyth Parade which are both known for being colourful, fun and steeped in Welsh History. Cadw is also celebrating St David’s day by allowing free entry into a range of different castles. After 900 years of St David being pronounced as a Saints, the occasion has grown in popularity and is celebrated widely, in and out of Wales.
Tan Rallt Holiday Park is located in the heart of the Welsh Countryside and boasts of views which stretch over to the Snowdonia Mountain Range. We are also conveniently located to local attractions including Porth Eirias Water Sports, Zip World and Surf Snowdonia so your North Wales stay can be full of adventure. We pride ourselves on incorporating Welsh culture into the park whether it’s the daffodils that are scattered around the grounds or the locally sourced ingredients that are used in our restaurant The Cliffs.
So, whether you are wearing your traditional 18th century Welsh costume, baking Welsh cakes or wearing a leek with pride, we wish you all a happy and joyful St David’s day!
