Cyhoeddi Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Caerdydd 2018

Historically, the Eisteddfod has to announce it’s intention to visit an area at least a year and a day before the start of the festival. The Cardiff National Eisteddfod is to be held next year in the Bay from 3 - 11 August, and the proclamation ceremony on Saturday, June 24, kickstarting Tafwyl week, is a wonderful opportunity to announce this to everyone, both locally and nationally.

As part of the activities, a colorful procession is held during the early afternoon (around 14:00), including representatives from schools, local organizations and associations along with Gorsedd of Bards, to welcome the Eisteddfod to the Capital, and to introduce the Capital to the Eisteddfod. The procession starts and ends at City Hall and will parade down Queen Street. The day's pinnacle will be Proclamation Ceremony itself which will commence at 15.00 in a temporary Gorsedd Stone Circle on City Hall lawn.

During the cermeony, the first copy of the Cardiff Eisteddfod Competition Syllabus (list of competitions and information to anyone wishing to compete next year) will be presented to Archdruid Geraint Llifon, who leads this important ceremony from the Chair of the local Executive Committee, Ashok Ahir.

In addition to collaborating with Gŵyl Ifan on the day, a performance stage will offer a variety of entertainemnt from Cardiff groups and choirs during the morning (program to published in early June).
