About

This site is step 1 in an attempt to provide an up to date listing of Welsh meetup groups.

Site developed by James Mahoney, Welsh software developer that needs to speak more Welsh.

Data comes from this Google spreadsheet here.

All this information is maintained by hand based on groups known about in real life, or referenced on various Welsh learner’s forums or Welsh for adults websites.

As the site becomes a little more mature the plan is to find some volunteers to curate the list of meetups, and open it up to cover a wider area.

Techie details
