Merseyside Welsh Heritage Society
Cymdeithas Etifeddiaeth Cymry Glannau Mersi


The Society was set up in 2000 with the aim advancing the knowledge of the public and Merseyside in particular as to the culture, language and heritage of Welsh people in Merseyside. It has produced bilingual plaques to mark the contribution many Welsh people to Welsh life on Merseyside and further afield, and also held a series of successful festivals celebrating the contribution of notable individuals or activities.

2015 Mimosa

May 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the departure from Liverpool of the sailing ship Mimosa with 160 Welsh migrants. After an eight week voyage they landed at Port Madryn, Patagonia, and went on to set up the Welsh Settlement which survives to this day.
The intention is to place a suitable memorial at Pier Head. The City Council are meeting to discuss this further.

Further details will be posted nearer the event.
