The Society has been going strongly in Perth for over fifty years. We meet at the South Perth Bowling Club on the third Wednesday of every month at 7:30 pm. Some form of entertainment is arranged each month, whether it be a quiz night, a Welsh supper, a guest speaker, or of course, our very entertaining annual “Noson Lawen”. We also have regular daytime outings. Once a year, we celebrate the most important event on the Welsh calendar, St David’s Day, with a sumptuous formal dinner. We also have a close affiliation with the Free Welsh Church of Western Australia.
To be a member it is not essential that you speak Welsh, or were even born in Wales. We do, however, hope you share in the love of Wales and all things Welsh.
The formal objects of the Society are:
1. the advancement and promotion of Welsh Culture generally and Welsh music, language, customs and pursuits in particular;
2. the cultivation and fostering of a love for the interest of art, literature, music, history and sports of Wales;
3. the operation and maintenance of the association for the benefit of members generally; and
4. to secure the affiliation of all Welsh Societies and clubs established or to be established in Australia and in particular, in Western Australia.
Member fees are very reasonable with concessions for pensioners.
