Town is on song for a mu­sic treat

South Wales Echo - - YOURS -

CAER­PHILLY will again be awash with mu­si­cal and cre­ative tal­ent this au­tumn – as the Eisteddfod y Cy­moedd (Eisteddfod of the Val­leys) re­turns to the town for a sec­ond year.

It fol­lows the suc­cess­ful re­lo­ca­tion of the event to the town last year, when more than 250 com­peti­tors took part in the event.

The Eisteddfod of­fers chil­dren and adults from across the bor­ough and fur­ther afield the op­por­tu­nity to come to­gether and com­pete in a range of com­pe­ti­tions.

These in­clude singing, danc­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, choir singing and in­stru­ment play­ing.

It will be held on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20, from 3.30pm at Cam­pws y Gwyndy.

But those wish­ing to take part need to act quickly as the clos­ing date for en­tries from schools, in­di­vid­u­als or groups is next week – on Oc­to­ber 6.

Dave Poole, leader of Caer­philly county coun­cil, said: “It is fan­tas­tic that we are once again host­ing the pres­ti­gious event.

“It was hugely pop­u­lar last year and we look for­ward to once again show­cas­ing the tal­ent of our young peo­ple.”

Schools from across the county and be­yond took part in the Eisteddfod last year, which cel­e­brated its 10th an­niver­sary.

Aled John, chair­man of the Eisteddfod, said: “It was a plea­sure to see such a high cal­i­bre of per­for­mances un­der one roof last year and we were de­lighted to see such a high num­ber tak­ing part.

“As well as show­cas­ing lo­cally grown tal­ent, the Eisteddfod brings to­gether Welsh and non-Welsh speak­ers to­gether for a hugely en­joy­able evening.

“This year we’re look­ing to build on the suc­cess of last year’s event and see even more peo­ple tak­ing part.

“Full de­tails on all com­pe­ti­tions can be found on our web­site www.eisteddfody­cy­ and I’d en­cour­age any­one in­ter­ested in tak­ing part to reg­is­ter now.”
