County Voice 2019: Issue 3

Countdown to the Urdd begins

The countdown has begun as Denbighshire prepares to welcome the youth of Wales to the county.

The county is hosting the Urdd Eisteddfod, to be held on Kilford Farm on the outskirts of Denbigh from 25-30 May, 2020.

Urdd Gobaith Cymru are arranging the event and are being supported by local communities who have already arranged and held countless fund-raising activities. The Council is also fully supporting the Eisteddfod with arrangements.

The festival provides opportunities for young people to compete in a wide range of competitions, ranging from singing, reciting, cerdd dant, drama, dance, art, craft, science and cookery – this list is not exhaustive.

There will be opportunities for the youth in Denbighshire to compete in local and county events. The winner in each competition at county level then represents Denbighshire at the national eisteddfod.

Whilst preparations are well under-way for the main Eisteddfod, the next major step will be the Proclamation Ceremony being hosted in Prestatyn on Saturday, October 5th. Keep the dates clear in your diaries.

Further information will be shared over the coming months.
