Each year hundreds of colourful dancers, talented instrumentalists, singers and choirs from all over the world congregate to take part in the unique Llangollen International Eisteddfod for a week at the beginning of July.
Once again this year S4C will have extensive coverage from the Eisteddfod during the week with Nia Roberts, Trystan Ellis-Morris, Alwyn Humphreys, Mari Grug and Wyn Davies presenting live programmes and highlights packages.
The team will follow the competitions on the stage as well as bringing the buzz of the festival around the town to the screen. The Choir of the World competition will also be shown live on Saturday, 7 July as winners of the main choral competitions during the week compete for the main prize, The Pavarotti Trophy.
"Walking around the field during Eisteddfod week is an experience in itself," explains Hefin Owen, Executive Producer of S4C's coverage from Llangollen. "With the sea of colour, the song and dance and the hundreds of international competitors, the friendly atmosphere strikes you from the outset. It looks as if this year's festival will be as memorable as ever.
"This year there is a new Music Director at the helm and Eilir Owen Griffiths has created an exciting and attractive schedule for Llangollen Eisteddfod, including a new Show Choirs competition on Thursday. Also on the bill this year is the colourful parade through the town to start the festival, the Choir of the World competition celebrating the best choirs of the week on the Saturday and a special peace concert on the Friday evening featuring a performance of Karl Jenkins' masterpiece 'The Peacemakers'. There will be highlights of that concert on S4C on Sunday, 8 July."
Trystan Ellis-Morris, who is also a familiar face on Cyw - the Channel's nursery service, is looking forward to present from Llangollen for the third year.
Trystan says, "Llangollen Eisteddfod is very different to any other Eisteddfod I've ever been to. It gives performers from Wales to America, South Africa to Australia the chance to perform on one stage and educate people about their own cultures. It's great that competitors make wonderful friendships during the week and that different cultures share the same stage and join together to enjoy this special occasion!"
