Wales Week in London is back for its second year and we’re delighted to have been named as one of the latest sponsors. With over 70 activities and events lined up in the UK capital to celebrate and promote Welsh culture, sport, business, food and drink, tech and more it promises to be even bigger, louder and more varied this year.
The initiative, which involves the promotion of a programme of Welsh-related events and promotions taking place over two weeks, from Saturday 24th February to Friday 10th March is in full swing and those visiting and living in the capital will not have failed to notice the promotion and celebration of all things Welsh.
Circle are involved in a number of events taking place during the Wales Week in London including the Wales Week Partners & Sponsors Dinner, The Prime Minister’s St David’s Day Reception, held at 10 Downing Street and finishing with the sold-out St David’s Day Dinner held at Guildhall with special guests Broadcaster and former Wales and British Lions International Eddie Butler and Film, television and stage actor Steffan Rhodri.
Dan Langford, one of the Wales Week in London founders and marketing director at Wales’ leading multi-specialist recruitment firm Acorn said: “We can’t thank everyone enough for their incredible enthusiasm and support for Wales Week in London. It’s going to be a fantastic fortnight and we look forward to celebrating St David’s Day and creating as much Welsh noise in London as possible.”
The event is supported by the Welsh Government, Office for the Secretary of State for Wales, Welsh communities currently resident in London and more than 17 sponsors, including Circle.
Roger Harry, CEO of Circle said that he wanted to be part of such an enthusiastic promotion of Wales. He said: “As a business working across the UK we are proud to have stayed true to our roots with our headquarters and main operations still based in Cardiff. We work with and support a number of key business based in and around London, and Wales Week in London is the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our heritage whilst supporting the wider objective of raising the profile of Welsh businesses in the capital”.
