International Eisteddfod 2023 – Tuesday 4th July until Sunday 9th July
This year is the 76th Anniversary of the Eisteddfod which dates back to 1947, when the first event was held in this little Welsh town. The concept was the promotion of peace following the second World War. Today musicians and dancers come to Llangollen from all over the world to participate in the various competitions.
A busy day at the Eisteddfod bustling with children of all ages, several groups took part in colouring Welsh loving spoons.
We were fortunate to welcome to our tent our Sponsored dance group. Regional President Susan Heywood presented the leader of the group with a commemorative certificate on behalf of the Region. The group were from Indonesia “ Labschool Kebayoran, Senior school”. The young female group were delightful and very appreciative. We were able to see them dance in their competition and pleased that they came 2nd.

Following the presentation, the young ladies seen here in the tent chatted and took some refreshments.
I was able to obtain verbal permission from the Teachers before these photos were taken. We also had a VIP visitor The Secretary of State for Wales David Davies MP, He was extremely interested in our work and display boards and happily took away some of our leaflets.The children are colouring in Welsh Love spoons.
We also had a visit from a fellow Soroptimist from Canberra, Australia who is chatting to Glenys.
