The Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru is a celebration of Welsh culture, a mix of talent competitions and evening concerts, gigs, plays and exhibitions and much more. A family friendly event that encourages all (Cymraeg and di-Gymraeg speakers alike) to come experience the unique combination of competitive events and festival elements. The Eisteddfod is an inclusive event that welcomes all, no matter of your Welsh language skills, there's something for everyone on the Maes!

Learning Welsh

If you are learning Welsh, haven't used it for while or have previously thought about starting your journey then there's no better place to practice than the Eisteddfod! Make sure you visit Maes D (the Eisteddfod's Welsh learners village) during your time on the Maes to find a course that works for you.

Locally, there's a whole host of Welsh language courses available with Dysgu Cymraeg, and you can also find a list of Welsh coffee mornings on the Menter Iaith RCT activities page where you can use your Welsh skills in an informal setting.
