Diwrnod Shwmae (Shwmae Day)

​​The aim of Shwmae day is to show that the Welsh language belongs to everyone – fluent speakers, learners, those who have lost confidence and those who only know a few words.

Shwmae is a South Wales way of saying ‘How do you do?’ or Su’mae for North Wales.

Shwmae day is an annual event to celebrate the Welsh language. There will be a display stand in County Hall reception, and many teams have organised their own events to celebrate the day.  
A number of Council departments have come together to create a short video which will be shown on the day.

Why not try starting a conversation with Shwmae? There are many ways to take part in Shwmae / Su’mae day and to encourage others to take part.
