Do you know …
The Eisteddfod is a Welsh festival of literature and music. The idea of the festival goes back at least to the 12th century. Lord Rhys first held a bardic tournament – a competitive festival of music and poetry in Cardigan.
Today’s National Eisteddfod maintains the tradition, but there are also all kinds of activities and entertainment for people of all ages and backgrounds.
The Eisteddfod is a microcosm of all Welsh things. The language of the Eisteddfod is Welsh. However, there is a warm welcome for everyone whatever your language. Information and translation facilities are available to ensure everyone enjoys the Eisteddfod.
The site of the National Eisteddfod alternates between north and south Wales. The National Eisteddfod takes place for 10 days from the first Saturday in August.
