The Peace Message

 

Pupils from Ysgol Y Gwernant, Llangollen, delivering the 2017 Peace Message

Since 1952, the young people of Llangollen have presented a message of peace and goodwill to the children of the world from the stage of the Royal International Pavilion, during Children’s Day, which is attended by large groups of pupils from schools across the region.┬áThis began as an echo of the annual Message of Peace and Goodwill from the youth of Wales to the World┬ábut then evolved to take on its own Llangollen flavour.

The message is usually delivered as a short piece of spoken text, and in 2017 the message was performed by Ysgol Y Gwernant, and reflected on the 70 year history of the Eisteddfod.
