Win Tickets to the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod

I’ve never been to a festival. I always wanted to go to Glastonbury. I swore I would go the year after my 21st birthday, and typically, that ended up the year it didn’t happen. After that, life got in the way and I never ended up going to any. The urge to go to a pop or rock festival has kind of passed a bit now – I don’t know half of the artists that feature at them, and to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of a lot of chart music.

That’s where the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is a bit different, and much more up my street. An Eisteddfod is a Welsh festival of music, literature and performance. On the S4C channel at the moment there is coverage of the 2017 International Eisteddfod, which we have watched bits of over half term and enjoyed, so we are excited to be able to go the music festival in Llangollen in North Wales in July.

What’s happening at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod?

It’s a week-long family-friendly celebration of music, dance and culture. It’s been running for 70 years, and features live performances and two tipis housing children’s craft activities and musical instruments all week, as well as giant outdoor games and activities. On the evenings are performances from big name artists, such as the Manic Street Preachers and Gregory Porter. The overall message of the festival is one of peace, unity and inclusion, which given recent events is rather poignant.

Each day from Wednesday 5th – Saturday 8th July is themed to allow families to explore many corners of the world, from Europe’s rich culture and South America’s Latin beats to traditions from the Asian continent and contemporary and traditional African music.
Children’s choirs and dance groups will take centre stage on Wednesday 5th July as the festival’s international competitions start, with the winner of the Children’s Choir of the World being announced the following day.
There will be ‘Legendary Storytelling’ from across the globe Wednesday – Friday, while Saturday will see Circus Skills, Bubble Workshops and Punch and Judy and Magic Shows.
There are tickets available for both the daytime and the evenings, starting at £15 for the daytime. With day tickets, the events go on until 7.30pm, so it really is a full day out!

  1. Just like you Rachel, I’ve ‘intended’ to go to a festival for many years but still haven’t got round to it. Hubby says we wait and go with the kids to Glasto when they’re teens now LOL! Imagine the Kevin and Perry scenes!

  2. Being a former choir boy, am looking forward to watching all the choirs. Choir of the World 2017

  3. I love the all the singing and dancing. I saw the opening procession through the streets of Llangollen a couple of years ago and enjoyed witnessing all the enthusiasm and happiness of the people who were taking part. It started to rain but spirits were not dampened.

  4. The kids would love circus skills and bubbles! We’ve been to a few smaller festivals, I love discovering acts I’d never have usually seen otherwise 🙂

  5. Sounds a perfect event for our first family festival in amazing surroundings.

  6. Many thanks for the Eisteddfod tickets Rachel. We had a wonderful time. We went on the Friday which also was the day of the procession through Llangollen. Magic. I also found I knew the town crier who led the the procession – an escapee from the Midlands who is now making the most of living in North Wales.

    1. Oh I’m so glad you had a lovely time, and thankyou so much for letting me know!Are you a midlander in Wales as well? Seems like there are a few of us! x
