As the world continues to battle through the Coronavirus pandemic, we wanted to update you on our plans for Llangollen Online 2021 which are being adapted to reflect the environment that we are now all living in.
As you’re aware, we have suspended the traditional live competition strands for Llangollen 2021, and are reimagining our event in a way that can be delivered safely but which will still capture the magic of our international Eisteddfod in a digital format.
We were hoping to create a hybrid weekend as part of this year’s offer, featuring artists from the 2020 line-up including our iconic Llanfest evening, but due to continued restrictions this cannot be realised this summer. Llanfest ticket holders will be contacted by your ticket provider for a full refund in the next week.
Any other customers who have retained tickets from 2020 will also be contacted in the next week to confirm their ticketing options. Further information is also available on our website and social media channels.
We know that it will be a disappointment to many that we are not able to put on our usual Eisteddfod this year. But please be reassured that we remain committed to our Eisteddfod’s founding mission of bringing people together through music and dance, which will be at the heart of our alternative approach to Llangollen 2021. We thank you for your understanding and as ever, we are grateful for your support.
Please find our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) here.
Will there be an Eisteddfod in 2021?
Llangollen 2021 Online will be a purely digital event, as it will not be possible for us to hold live concerts or competitions due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. The online event will take place during the usual Eisteddfod week and further details will be announced soon.
What are the dates for Llangollen 2021 Online?
As we are working on finalising our programme for Llangollen 2021 Online we are not in a position to confirm the exact dates of festival yet. However, we expect that the programme will run between the 6th – 11th July 2021.
Is Llanfest happening?
Sadly, it is not possible for Llanfest with James Morrison and Will Young to go ahead due to the Coronavirus restrictions and we are cancelling all bookings for that event. Ticket holders will be contacted by our Box Office, or by their ticket agents, to arrange a refund.
I have retained Eisteddfod tickets from 2020 – how will this affect me?
Customers who have not already confirmed their instructions in relation to tickets retained from 2020 will be contacted by our Box Office to confirm their ticketing options.
