Council's good luck message to Urdd competitors

Denbighshire County Council has issued a good luck message to children and young people from the county travelling down to South Wales for the Urdd Eisteddfod later this month.

Hundreds of pupils have competed at local and regional heats to qualify for this year’s national competition, being held at Pencoed near Bridgend from May 29 until June 3.

They will be competing 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 so far.

“To reach the national heats is a great testament to the amount of good work going on and our pupils will be great ambassadors for Denbighshire and for Welsh language culture. I would like to wish them the best of luck down in Bridgend”.
