If you’re new to Ceredigion, or thinking of moving here, we’d like to welcome you to one of the most vibrant bilingual communities in Wales. And to help get you settled in, here’s some information about the county and some of its fantastic services.
Welsh is one of the oldest languages in Europe and here in Ceredigion there is a vibrant bilingual community and a broad range of lively cultural and community events and activities for you to enjoy.
There are six large market towns in Ceredigion and miles of wonderful beaches and walking routes to explore. You can also learn about the history and rich culture of the county by experiencing a wide variety of the county’s social, cultural and Welsh language traditions.
All over Ceredigion you’ll notice lots of interesting and original place names which often refer to the history or character of the town, village, house or the people who have lived there over the centuries. Which is why if you’re curious about what a name means you can contact us here at Cered, Ceredigion’s Welsh language initiative - and we’ll tell you a bit more about about its history and meaning.
Ceredigion has lots of groups and organisations that meet regularly to bring the community together. Groups like Cylchoedd ti a fi, Urdd, Young Farmers, and Merched y Wawr which organise a number of fun cultural events like gigs, local eisteddfod, fairs, concerts, and celebrations that everyone can enjoy!
For more general information about the Welsh language and the other bilingual services and events Ceredigion has to offer you can get in contact with us. Information about events and activates will also be available in your local community and events are advertised on the Welcome to Ceredigion website.
