Wales in London Set for Return with Celebration Event


An organisation which celebrates and supports the Welsh diaspora in London is returning thanks to a rebrand. 

The Wales in London society will provide a ‘one stop shop’ for the Welsh community in the capital. The society’s revival has been made possible thanks to the support of Menai Science Park on Anglesey.

The first event is Celebration of Female Founders, focusing on remarkable women in business. Organisers say a revival of Wales in London wouldn’t have been possible without the women involved, so they say it’s a fitting celebration for the launch of the re-brand.

The event will take place at The Shard on June 6th from 6pm to 8:30pm.

The event’s lineup of guest speakers includes:

Catrin Owen- Co-founder of Tropic design studio.
Nan Williams- Group chief executive of Four Communications Agency and Chair of Global Welsh
Women Angels of Wales- Network from the Development Bank of Wales.

Catrin Owen of Tropic design studio led the re-brand of the society. She said:

“At Tropic we have enjoyed working with the Wales in London society on re-branding their identity. In the new logo we reflect how Wales in London acts as a bridge between both places, ensuring that a connection to Wales is continuous for the Welsh Diaspora of London.”

Baroness Carmen Smith, the youngest member ever appointed to the House of Lords, is also due to be at the event.

Baroness Carmen Smith, who is from Anglesey, said:

“I look forward to celebrating the wonderful Welsh women who are leading the way in their industries. It is vital that we recognise their brilliant work so that we can inspire other young women to follow in their footsteps. I’m honoured to be able to speak at the Wales in London’s re-launch event.”

The event is due to include panel discussions, networking opportunities, and food and drink from Wales.
