Welsh National Eisteddfod

The first week of August the Grand Bard and Deputy Grand Bard went to the Welsh National Eisteddfod, which was held this year in Llanrwst in Conwy, N Wales. The Maes was in a big field full of marquees under the beautiful mountains. It was a lovely setting.

On Monday there was the Gorsedd Circle ceremony, where new members were received, and luckily the sun shone. In the afternoon was the crowning ceremony, the poetry prize, in the Pavilion. On Wednesday it was the Prose Medal ceremony, also in the Pavilion.

There was a warm welcome from the Welsh Gorsedd. The Grand Bard and Deputy Grand Bard were also very pleased to meet the delegates from the other Celtic countries.
