Eisteddfod yr Urdd is on its way – and there’s less than a 100 days to go!
The 100 day milestone was celebrated with a photo shoot on the site at Kilford Farm on the outskirts of Denbigh, as well as a live broadcast from Denbigh Library when children from Ysgol Pen Barras, Ruthin performed.
Now, as the Eisteddfod enters its final stages of preparations, the Council is also busy making arrangements its marquee for the maes. Discovering Denbighshire is the theme for the marquee and we will have plenty of activities and information for the whole family.
We will be having a dedicated arts and crafts section where we will be inviting children and young people to get involved in creating a piece of art that will be created during the day.
We will have a theatre space where choirs and individuals can perform or take the opportunity to rehearse for competitions.
There will be a space promoting tourism businesses in Denbighshire with plenty going on to give you a taste of what’s on offer in the county.
Countryside Service are arranging some activities to promote their work, so watch this space for more information a bit nearer the time.
Hundreds of children and young people are also heavily involved in preparations for the eisteddfod’s primary and secondary school age group shows.
All in all, it’s a busy time … and we must not forget the tremendous support provided by Denbighshire communities. They have worked tirelessly to raise funds for the Eisteddfod through numerous fundraising events and activities.
Come and see us at our marquee – it would be great to see you.
