Urdd Eisteddfod

Coronavirus update

Due to coronavirus, the Urdd have taken the decision to delay the eisteddfod in Denbighshire until Whitsun May 2021.


Urdd Eisteddfod

In May, Denbighshire will be welcoming Eisteddfod yr Urdd to the county.

The Eisteddfod is the largest event for young people in the whole of Europe and is a celebration of the wealth of cultural talent we have in Wales. Over 15,000 young people will be taking part in competitions, with 40,000 having already taken part in local and county heats.

It is an honour to be hosting the event in the county and the Council is working closely with the Urdd to make the event one to remember.

Of course the event has visited the county in the past, the last time was to Ruthin in 1991.

This year’s event will be hosted on Kilford Farm on the outskirts of Denbigh and over 90,000 people are expected to visit Denbighshire throughout the week. Many will be competing in competitions ranging from singing to recitation, drama to cerdd dant, arts and crafts, disco dancing, cookery, journalism, hairdressing and lots more.

For further information about the event, please visit the Urdd website.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our beautiful county and our part of North East Wales.  From bustling seaside resort to the majestic hills of the Clwyd and Dee valleys, from our historic towns to our picturesque villages, Denbighshire is a great destination to visit.
