Urdd Eisteddfod 2017: competitors’ countdown to Bridgend


Hundreds of competitors across the North Wales Coast are making final preparations ahead of this year’s Urdd National Eisteddfod in Bridgend.

After last year’s event in Flint, which attracted 90,000 people, one of Europe’s biggest youth festivals will be heading south to Pencoed during summer half-term week.

Denbighshire County Council has sent a good luck message to local competitors who have reached the national finals after competing in local and regional Eisteddfodau.

The council’s head of children’s services, Karen Evans, said: ”Yet again this year, there has been a wealth of talent on offer at the various eisteddfodau held in the county.  Pupils, teachers and parents have worked tirelessly to prepare for the heats and I would like to congratulate everyone on their efforts so far. 

”To reach the national heats is a great testament to the amount of good work going on and our pupils will be great ambassadors for Denbighshire and for Welsh language culture. I would like to wish them the best of luck down in Bridgend.”

We’ll be providing a full local results service at pointfm.co.uk throughout the Urdd National Eisteddfod.
