Welsh culture or English culture with a tall, pointed black hat?

The Eistedford is off, celebrating ‘Welsh culture’.

LFW has always been somewhat challenged by this notion of Welsh cultural uniqueness because as far as it can observe, the only difference between English culture and Welsh culture is that the latter tends toward druidical nostalgia, white (and blue) robes ‘an all, and the wearing of tall, pointed black hats from time to time.

Nothing like diversity is there?


PS There is of course laverbread, lamb stew and the odd corned beef pastie but LFW is not entirely sure how any of these fit into a great, occidental cultural diaspora.

Unless of course there is a Iolo ap Ramsay out there who is about to win a few Michelin Stars?
