17th May Celebrations held in Cardiff Bay

This is a short video showing the Syttende Mai Norwegian Constitutional Day celebrations in Cardiff and what the day means to Norwegians living in Wales. Swansea College of Art Norwegian film students Amelia Fevang and Annikken Fossberg captured the events of the day on behalf of the society.

Norwegian Constitutional Day celebrations were held in Cardiff Bay on the 17th May. Over one hundred Norwegians and other nationalities with an interest in Norway came together to parade from the Wales Millenium Centre to the Norwegian Church Arts Centre.

There the flag was raised to the national anthem performed by the Salvation Army Fellowship band. Once inside the church speeches were provided by members of the Society and a violin performance performed by Vyvyan Lucas and a moment was taken to remember those who gave their lives to protect our freedoms.

Traditional waffles and coffee were then enjoyed by all.
