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.

From the Chair
I hope you are keeping well at this difficult time. You will understand that sadly we are unable to hold the rest of our 19/20 programme. We are planning a programme for 20/21 and we will publish this as soon as we can.
The Transactions will be with you as soon as the printers resume work.
We very much welcome new members of the Society’s Council. If you are interested in joining the Council this year please do get in touch with me as we are keen to co-opt new members.
Thank you very much for your interest in the Society and for the support that you give.
