St David’s Cardiff to host ‘Tree Of Pride’  

Wednesday, 19 June 2024


 

In celebration of Pride Cymru, St David’s Cardiff is hosting a ‘Tree of Pride’, inviting guests to decorate the tree with their pledges to work toward a more inclusive and caring future.

The community art piece will be installed at the city shopping destination which the Pride Cymru parade route will pass. The Tree of Pride will then tour the country gathering the public’s messages of love, unity, and acceptance on its journey.

Guests can commit to one of the suggested pledges if they wish or leave a positive sentiment that feels appropriate to them, such as a dedication to a loved one, displaying their message on the tree’s branches.

The Tree of Pride will be at St David’s Cardiff during the Pride Cymru weekend, on Saturday 22nd June and Sunday 23rd June, and the public are invited to participate from 10am – 6pm on Saturday and 11am – 5pm on Sunday. The Tree of Pride will be located on the Upper Grand Arcade in St David’s Cardiff. Members of the St David’s team will also be taking part in the Pride Cymru parade, which will pass through The Hayes on the Saturday.

Helen Morgan, Centre Director of St David’s Cardiff, commented: “We celebrate our wonderfully diverse community all day, every day, and Pride Month is an opportunity to put a spotlight on progress made so far, and the work still to be done. We look forward to reading our guests’ messages celebrating inclusivity.”

Gian Molinu, Chair of Pride Cymru, said: “Visibility matters and it helps people understand they live in an open and inclusive community. We’re so grateful to St David’s for supporting Pride Cymru once again this year, by being really creative with the wonderful Tree of Pride.”
