Pupils from Ysgol Y Gwernant in Llangollen practising hard ahead of their performance of the poignant Peace Message. The local pupils will perform the Peace Message – an annual highlight of the festival – on the International Pavilion stage on Thursday 6th July as part of the International Celebration. The performance will also be delivered tomorrow [TUESDAY 4th JULY] during Children’s Day. This year the message – which has been coordinated by former Eisteddfod employee, Christine Dukes – reflects on the history of the Eisteddfod and in particular its relationship with the weather.
