St David's Day will look a little different this year.
While Mumbles usually marks the celebration with its annual Dragon Parade, with refreshments on offer at the Ostreme Centre, lockdown has put a stop to the event this year.
However, that doesn't mean Mumbles residents can't still celebrate St David's Day from their own homes.
Read on to find out how you can mark St David's Day in lockdown.
