Blog #6: Why we’re feeling the Welsh pride this St David’s Day

As a Welsh company, we always take pride in the work we do in Wales, it means a lot to us to help contribute to the Welsh community (of course we love our work outside of Wales too!).

Firstly, Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus everyone!

It feels like January took an age to end and now February has been and gone in a flash. But at least that means its St David’s Day today!! What better day to reminisce on some of the brilliant Welsh jobs we’ve completed so far in 2019.

Our fabulous Welsh holiday, St David’s Day, is finally here, along with the excuse to eat as many welshcakes as we please. This time of year is easy to recognise in Wales, purely because you’re never far from a daffodil, our national emblem. Whether they’re pinned to someone’s shirt, growing on your lawn, being sold for £1 (bargain!!) in your local supermarket OR flying high over Cardiff in the form of giant inflatable daffodils (FOR Cardiff’s awesome latest scheme #TheDaffTrail), they’re hard to miss.

So Welsh pride is running high at the moment, especially since we beat the English in our Guinness Six Nations match last Saturday! Here’s a few of our jobs which have brought us even more Welsh pride this year…

Six Nations Charity Lunch

This event took place on the 1st February, with the Cardiff Blues hosting their annual Six Nations Charity Lunch in the Heineken Marquee in Cardiff Arms Park. We provided all production for this event, including the set, stage, furniture for the set, sound, audio visual elements and the lighting. Our MDs attended this unmissable event, supporting the Cardiff Blues as their official sponsors.
