Flag of St David theme for Oriel y Parc’s Dragon Parade

Schools and local groups are invited to take part in Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre’s annual Dragon Parade on Saturday 29 February.

The event will be held at 11am in St Davids, and will feature local schoolchildren and community groups processing through the streets of Britain’s smallest city, accompanied by a live band.

Claire Bates, Manager of Oriel y Parc said: “The theme for the parade in 2020 is Black and Gold, echoing the colours of the flag of St. David. We hope to create an impressive visual display of black and gold dragons to celebrate the patron saint of Wales.

“This year local artist, Elly Morgan, who specialises in sculpture from recycled and reclaimed materials, will be leading workshops in the run-up to the Parade. These are available to new groups who wish to create a dragon head, and to groups who have supported the parade previously, in case they wish to update existing materials, or create something new.”

Workshops are suitable for pupils of all key stages, and will be held on 27, 30 and 31 January, and 3, 6, and 7 February, with sessions available in the morning or afternoon. Each workshop is open to one class of children from each school or group, and places are available on a strictly first-come, first-served basis.

There is no charge for the workshop, which is supported by funds from Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority. However, schools may wish to collect materials in advance to make their dragons.

If your group or school would like to get involved please call Oriel y Parc on 01437 720392 or email to register your interest in the workshops and parade event.
