Calling all Welsh people, their families and friends in the Bournemouth and surrounding area! And those who simply have an affinity with Wales, Welsh culture or with people who are Welsh.

By establishing an active meetup group, we aim to foster the common interests of those with some Welsh connection to the Principality where they can enjoy companionship and friendship. All ages are welcome. Regular meetups are shown in our calendar and these will always be social, friendly and informal.

Members may bring invited guests (normally limited to one or two, depending on the event) - the so-called ‘+1, +2’ on our site. However, we ask that if a member brings the same guest for two occasions, we will request they become a member to attend further events.

We also encourage our members to suggest venues and occasions for meetups and even host or co-host events with the support of The Welsh Connection organiser, Susan Powell.

So, come on, join us, enjoy yourself, bring your ideas and influence what you want the group to be!

(The language of the group is English, which means that those who have no Welsh are not at any disadvantage.)

The group has links with, and is sponsored by Bournemouth and District Welsh Society, which can be viewed on:-

Please note, it is not our intention to make a charge for membership, even though the founders dedicate their time freely and incur some costs in maintaining the Group. All we ask in return, is that members practise good etiquette, give adequate notice of cancelling their attendance at events (we appreciate that in rare circumstances, this is not possible) and, finally, to pay promptly where an up-front fee is necessary to secure bookings.
