Do I have to be Welsh to be able to visit the London Welsh Centre? – we have an open doors policy. We want everyone to learn about Welsh culture. We offer a warm welcome to everyone who has an interest in Wales.
Do I have to be a member to use the facilities at the London Welsh Centre? – the bar is open to the public and anyone can hire our rooms. Supporters of the Centre will be entitled to benefits such as special offers on drinks at the bar and discounted room hire as well as being able to join our Welsh classes and resident choirs. It’s worthwhile and rewarding being a Centre supporter.
When is the bar open? – the bar opens from Monday to Friday 5pm – 11pm and on weekends for events and private functions.
Do you show any live sport in the bar? – we show all the 6 Nations games on our big screens in the bar. We post on our website and Facebook pages if we are showing any other games. We do not have Sky Sports at the Centre.
Does the Centre serve food? – we offer basic snacks in the bar on weekday evenings.
Trust, Association, Club – what does it all mean? – the Centre is made up of separate entities for legal and commercial reasons. They all come under the banner of the London Welsh Centre.
How is the Centre funded? – we are mostly self-funding through memberships subscriptions, donations and income from our Room Hire business. We have been extremely grateful to receive legacies in recent years.
Are the London Welsh Centre and London Welsh Rugby Club the same organisation? – No, we are separate organisations located in very different areas of London. We believe the Centre has a key role in linking the numerous London Welsh organisations. We work with, amongs others, the London Welsh School, the London Welsh Rugby Football Club and Wales in London to raise the profile of Wales through education, culture, sport and business activities.
