Urdd success in South Wales

Denbighshire County Council is congratulating children and young people from across the county for their tremendous success at the Urdd National Eisteddfod, held in Bridgend last week.

A strong delegation from the county’s schools qualified for this year’s national competition, held at Pencoed from May 29 until June 3.

They competed in a wide range of competitions, including singing, cerdd dant and recitation, as well as off-stage competitions in arts, crafts, design and literary categories.

Karen Evans, Denbighshire’s Head of Education and Children’s Services, said: “Yet again this year, there has been a wealth of talent on offer at the various eisteddfodau held in the county.  Pupils, teachers and parents have worked tirelessly to prepare for the heats and I would like to congratulate everyone on their efforts.

“To reach the national heats is a great testament to the amount of good work going on and our pupils were great ambassadors for Denbighshire and for Welsh language culture. The fact that our young people performed so brilliantly at the Eisteddfod is a reflection of their commitment, passion and dedication for Welsh culture”.
