Tuesday 4 July
On the field

The Eisteddfod opens with International Children’s Day, hosted by CBBC presenter Storm Huntley, exclusively for schools. The 70th Birthday Bash will include performances from our international competitors, Only Boys Aloud (Gogledd), Tubalate and the delivery of the poignant Peace Message from Ysgol Y Gwernant.

Step back in time…
The field returns to 1947 where it all began. Learn to dance the Lindy Hop, Jive and Rock ‘n’ Roll, or leave it to the professionals as they showcase swing dances such as The Trankey Doo and Big Apple. Wonder at the dazzling artistry of magicians, stilt walkers, jugglers, circus acts and bubble workshops as you soak up the true spirit of the Eisteddfod.

Kids Zone (all week)…
Two tipis will house children’s craft activities and musical instruments, as well as giant outdoor games and activities throughout the week.

Into the evening… from 4:30pm
• The Ed Watt Band – live music from the 1950s
• Y Twmpath – join in with Welsh folk dancing
• Amphitheatre Sessions with The Meadows
The Jazz Hour at 6pm – Trefor Owen ‘Wales Plays Brazil’
