Membership is open to anyone with Welsh origins or connections,

or to anyone with an appreciation of Welsh heritage and traditions.

Visitors and guests are warmly welcomed to attend our meetings


All meetings are conducted in English with an opportunity to converse with other Welsh speakers during the evening. The topics and/or speakers at our meetings usually have a Welsh connection although there are also some of local interest. We also hold a Noson Lawen in January, a St David's Day Dinner and a Church Service on or around March 1st. We regularly hold a Cymanfa Ganu, and organise an annual concert featuring a Welsh Male Choir in May/June held at Chelmsford Cathedral. There is also an opprtunity to join us in a short break visit to Wales. Throughout the year there are also fund raising events such as coffee mornings, musical evenings and a Garden Party at the end of June.


The Society's monthly Meeting is normally held in St Cedd's Hall, Cathedral Chapter House, Chelmsford, (CM1 1NX Essex, England), close to the Cathedral, and is usually on the fourth Wednesday of every month, September through to June at 7.00 p.m. for 7.30 p.m.


Please note that Venues, dates and times of our meetings occasionally change and you are advised to check our DIARY page above or check our latest  NEWSLETTER for exact timings and venues of meetings and events.
