Urdd Eisteddfod 2018
Darran Park is entering the National Urdd Eisteddfod for the second time this year and this is where you will find all the information you need to help your child prepare if they are to take part.
The Urdd Eisteddfod is the biggest Welsh Language Festival in Wales and hundreds of schools take part across the country. The finals of the Eisteddfod will take place in the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells this year, but there are several preliminary rounds to get through before this. The finals are televised on S4C. We will be entering the group poetry recital and the individual poetry recital, as well as the 2D art competition. The performing entries will be learner categories, so our second language pupils will be competing against other second language leaners.
The first round of the Eisteddfod will be held in the Parc and Dare Theatre in Treorchy on Saturday 10th March. The Eisteddfod will be starting at 9am, so if you could get to the theatre by 8:50, that would be much appreciated. Spectators are able to buy tickets on the door to the theatre: adults £4, children £1.50. All competitors enter for free, as the school has already paid for their registration fees for the Urdd. You are more than welcome to buy a ticket and watch, or you are equally welcome to drop the pupils off to me (Miss Baker) in the Lobby and I can call you to pick them up after the competition has finished. Please find below a copy of the schedule for the day. The individual recital is item no. 8 and the group recital is item no.11.
