Urdd: Preparing to welcome Wales to Denbighshire

The buzz and excitement around the Urdd National Eisteddfod’s return to the county in 2020 continues and at the Council we are getting ourselves ready to welcome the rest of Wales to our beautiful county.

The Council will have a stand at the Urdd Eisteddfod taking place in Cardiff Bay this Whitsun holiday. We will promoting places in the county to stay, as well as places to visit and things to do. We hope that people visiting the eisteddfod in the capital will think about returning to Denbighshire next year and getting their accommodation sorted as quickly as possible.

In May 2020, over 120,000 people are expected to visit the Eisteddfod for competitions and days out and we are preparing to provide a great welcome. Commmunities across Denbighshire have already collected thousands of pounds towards the cost of running the event, with hundreds of fund-raising events of all sorts being held across the county.

After the Cardiff Bay Eisteddfod, our focus will be on the proclamation ceremony which will take place in Prestatyn in October.
