Thanks for the heads up! Wish I could have made it - I work Monday nights. :frowning: I hear @joanalciati might be going, though!

Almost at Grand Central. :tada::wine_glass:


You should have seen me leaving the office with a Welsh flag :sunglasses:


Say that someone managed to record this … I’d love to see/hear this, really! (or it wasn’t happening yet …)

@joanalciati Sut aeth hi?!

Croeso. Bummer you have to miss it.

Any sign of film footage of this yet? I’ve been hanging back from uploading the weekly email hoping to get a link to it!

Aha - just found this


It was fun! Heard lots of Welsh all around us. I met up with Ivan and we went for a drink afterwards. He filmed some of it. Did you see Dee’s video link below?


Or above, as the case may be :sunglasses:

A link to a video of this has also been posted on Clecs, hope this works:


Da iawn pawb!

A fine rendering of the anthem! :slight_smile:
