March for Independence - Bangor

We march in Bangor on the 23 of September 2023! 

All the details you need are here.

With the latest polling indicating support for independence at 34%, and following the success of the March for Independence in Swansea earlier this year, where over 7,000 marched for an independent Wales, this forthcoming march aims to further galvanise the movement for an independent Wales.

Supporters are invited to gather at Glanrafon Car Park from 12pm onwards, with the march officially starting at 1pm. Marchers are encouraged to bring flags, banners, whistles, drums, and, above all, their family and friends. 

For all the latest updates on the march you can RSVP here.

Our independence marches have been going from strength to strength in recent years, and with support growing, there is a strong possibility that this march will be the biggest yet. Taking our demands for independence to a city like Bangor for the first time will send a clear message to the rest of Wales, Westminster and beyond that we are serious about our cause, and the only way to secure our future generations is for the Wales to take care of its own affairs.

The march will take a route through Bangor city centre and return to Glanrafon car park for speeches and some entertainment.

The weekend will also include several fringe events which will be announced in due course, and an indy Market, where you’ll have the opportunity to buy and interact with several pro-indy companies and organisations.

As usual, YesCymru are organising coaches to the March for Independence in Bangor with tickets available via the YesCymru Shop.


The march will travel down Bangor High Street, turning onto Glynne Road before proceeding down Deiniol Road back towards Glanrafon Car Park.

INDY WALES RALLY - Following the March

Following the march there will be a Rally at Glanrafon Car Park starting from around 2pm, with a large stage and screen, speakers and music. Amongst those taking part are:

  • Rhun ap Iorwerth

  • Sera Cracroft

  • Joseph Gnagbo

  • Karen Wynne

  • Bryn Fôn

  • Fleur De Lys

  • + More


Next to Glanrafon Car Park, The Old Bowling Green will host an "Indy Market" from 10am to 4pm, where organisations will promote their causes, and local artisans and producers will showcase their offerings, creating a space for communal engagement and support.


As the day turns to evening, the celebration continues with the “Independence Gig” at Theatr Bryn Terfel, Pontio. Fleur De Lys, Tara Bandito, 3 Hwr Doeth, and Maes Parcio are set to rock the stage, promising an evening of entertainment that resonates with the day's themes. Click here to buy your ticket.
