Liverpool’s historic links with Wales will be celebrated this St David’s Day at the Town Hall.

The service will take place at Liverpool Town Hall on Friday 1 March and will be performed by Reverend Professor Dr Ben Rees.

Lord Mayor, Councillor Sharon Sullivan said: “The Welsh civic service is a great opportunity to celebrate our long standing links with Wales.

“We are very fortunate to have such a great relationship with our Welsh neighbours and I hope we continue to celebrate this friendship for many years to come.”

Reverend Rees said: “The Welsh civic reception is always a time to celebrate and rejoice. We are always guaranteed a very warm welcome in the city of Liverpool.

The Welsh flag will fly at full mast from the Town Hall and the Welsh Choral Choir will be in attendance to lead the hymns. The Prayer of Thanksgiving will be led by Rev. Dr Elfed ap Nefydd Roberts, M.A., of Wrexham.
