Thousands turn out to watch Parade of Nations

Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod’s celebrated Parade of Nations took place in the town on Wednesday afternoon.

Thousands of spectators watched the colourful cavalcade start from the Eisteddfod and process through the town centre.

They were thrilled to see competitors and performers from as far away as Burundi, Canada, China, Ghana, India, Japan, Malaysia, Morocco, Singapore, South Africa, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, USA and Zimbabwe alongside dozens of groups from the UK. 

The parade was followed by a huge party on the Eisteddfod field, where visitors were given access to the Eisteddfod site for just one pound.
