Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre is inviting people of all ages and abilities to celebrate St David’s Day virtually this year by ‘Drawing a Dragon’ and sharing their designs via social media.
Oriel y Parc challenges you to draw, create and make a special St David’s Day Dragon for a Digital Dragon Parade on Monday 1 March, to celebrate the nation’s patron saint and to fill social media feeds with positivity in a celebration of all things Welsh.
Oriel y Parc Manager, Claire Bates said: “Located in the patron saint’s city of St Davids in Pembrokeshire, Oriel y Parc would normally celebrate the special day by organising a Dragon Parade throughout the city. Local schoolchildren and community groups usually walk through the streets with specially created dragon sculptures to the beat of a marching band.
“Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this is not possible this year, so Oriel y Parc is urging people to stay home, design a dragon and celebrate St David’s day digitally.”
Please share your dragon creation with Oriel y Parc on social media on 1 March by using the hashtag via:
