Armidale’s Eisteddfod is an important cultural event in the New England calendar that continues a wonderful cultural tradition established in Wales over 900 years ago.
Welsh Eisteddfods were festivals celebrating the performance of literature and music, and this concept holds true to this day. Down the centuries, Eisteddfods have evolved to reflect changing societies but they remain an enduring part of Australia’s cultural heritage as important training grounds for emerging entertainers – our musicians, dancers and actors.
The Armidale Community is preparing for the next Eisteddfod which starts on Wednesday May 15 and ends with a Gala Concert on Sunday June 16. Competition finishes on Wednesday June 5. We invite all to review the many performance opportunities available and share your time and talents.
