Korea Day in Wales – Dydd Korea yn Cymru

On the first Saturday in May, the City of Cardiff will be celebrating everything Korean. We understand that the event’s opening will have a high-profile VIP: none other than the Lord Mayor of Cardiff will be giving a welcome speech. Last year’s events in Sheffield and elsewhere were a big hit, so make your way to Cardiff to join the fun if you can.
