Welcome to our website. In accordance with the aims of our founders, The Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion seeks to promote the practice and development of the Language, Literature, Arts and Sciences of Wales.
In the past, the Society played a significant part in the establishment of such institutions as the The National Eisteddfod, the University of Wales, the National Library and the National Museum. Today, the Society continues to make an important contribution to political and cultural discourse in Wales. We also support the recognition of the Welsh language in contemporary society and, through the award of a Medal, we provide formal acknowledgement of the contribution of those who have given distinguished service to Wales.
The Coronavirus cancellations
The Council of The Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion much regrets that it has been necessary to cancel the lecture on Tuesday 21st April. This was to have been given by Dr Rhian Davies on “The Musical Vision for Wales of Walford Davies”. We expect, too, that we will have to postpone our AGM and the lecture on Thursday 21st May. But we will keep the website up to date as the virus crisis unfolds. We hope our members and supporters keep well at this difficult time.
As it relates to matters consistent with the aims of the Society, we thought you might be interested in the following event: Do you need a strong constitution to be a national poet?
