Eisteddfod T 2021

 

From traditional to TikTok, the Urdd reveals its plans for this year’s Eisteddfod T.

Anything goes and there’s no need to be a member. Back for the second year running, this exciting festival will take place during summer half term. The line-up of contests is seemingly endless, with something for everyone whether you fancy bursting into song with pals from your school bubble, decorating a cake or enrolling your talented pet. Registration opens on Monday 1st March and runs until the 26th before the Easter break. Read full details in PDF below...
