Volunteering Opportunities

Hosts for Overseas Competitor Groups

We have an urgent requirement to find additional volunteers who would be willing to host some of our overseas competitor groups during Eisteddfod week.

Hosts accompany their allocated groups for the duration of their visit to Llangollen and are responsible for ensuring they are in the right place at the right time. They help to acquaint them with the festival site, assist with any enquiries or issues and act as a link with the Competitor Liaison Team who are based in the Reception Centre at the Eisteddfod ground. It is an important role but also good fun and gives the opportunity to build friendships with our overseas visitors, some of whom come back year after year.

Groups requiring hosts are from Morocco, Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa and will be based at accommodation in the locality.

If you would be interested in this role, please contact Merle Hunt, Competitor Liaison Officer on CLO@llangollen.net or call 01978 862010.
