What’s on in Pembrokeshire: March 2015
As the month begins with a celebration of the country’s patron saint there really is nowhere better to visit in March than Pembrokeshire.
Accommodation will have been booked months in advance to have secured somewhere comfortable to stay whilst enjoying the month’s festivities but if you are one of the lucky few to have found last minute Pembrokeshire deals, there is still plenty in store for March.
St David’s Day
Much of the St David’s Day festivities will be taking place on the 2nd March, the day after the official celebration of the Patron saint of Wales, where even the BBC’s Countryfile came to the county to celebrate. This includes the St David’s Day concert at canolfan hermon. Starting at 7pm with Welsh folk harpist arwyn tywyn and ysgol y frenni singing and reciting their eisteddfod pieces it is a piece of tradition that no visitor will want to miss. Tickets cost just £4 for adults and £1 for children and include tea, coffee or squash and cake with a raffle taking place for those who are feeling lucky.
Pembrokeshire Women’s Festival
Also taking place in March is the celebration of our most important women, Mother’s Day, and leading up to this significant event is the appropriate Pembrokeshire Women’s Festival. Taking place between the 7th and 15th March all genders and ages are welcome to enjoy the multitude of activities making up the event including talks, workshops and stalls as well as an evening with Gillian Clarke, National Poet of Wales at the Picton Centre on the 14th March at 7.30pm.
Children’s Easter Egg Trail
Finally, in preparation for every child’s favourite holiday, is the Picton Castle Easter Egg Trail. Tenby cottages at Easter are a firm favourite with families and with plenty of child-friendly events going on in the surrounding area during this time it isn’t difficult to see why. Join Picton Castle from the 28th March for a family fun day full of laughs adventure and, of course, Easter eggs!
