What: St David’s Day

Where: Cardiff, Wales

When: March 1

Cardiff comes alive for the birthday of St David, the Welsh patron saint.

While it may not rival St Patrick’s Day for epic festivities, it’s still a great time to be in the land of the leek.

“If you love Wales, you should be there,” say the organisers of Cardiff’s big parade.

Even if your affection isn’t that strong it’s worth checking out.
