ORATORS from across the dis­trict got their mo­ment in the spot­light at the Roma and Dis­trict Eisteddfod this week, with more than 200 in­di­vid­u­als step­ping up to the stage for cho­ral speak­ing, dra­matic per­for­mances and po­etry read­ings over three days. Re­turn­ing for its eleventh year, the eisteddfod, the qual­ity of com­pe­ti­tion has delighted sea­soned ad­ju­di­ca­tor Bryanne Jar­dine, who was judg­ing in Roma for the first time.

“I’m very im­pressed with the stan­dard of per­for­mance, it has been very high,” Ms Jar­dine said.

“Par­tic­u­larly with the schools, the teach­ers have done it all, and I was blown away.”
