Eisteddfod on Llyn

Peter called yesterday at the tent village that is appearing at Parc Glynllifon. On the 4th of June this year the Urdd will be holding their national Youth Eisteddfod there. For those who don't know, the Urdd is a youth organisation which encourages young people to take on activities and socialise through the medium of Welsh.
Eisteddfodau are an important part of Welsh culture. They are essential poetry and music competitions. This year's National Eisteddfod takes place from the 4th to the 11th of August in the Vale of Glamorgan. This event focuses on Welsh poetry, and has two prestigious prizes, the Crown for best free verse, and the even more sought after Chair for best poem in strict meter verse or Cynghanedd.
