Transcript of Eisteddfod

A Welsh festival celebrating music, literature and performance
The tradition dates back to the 12th century when it was created to highlight the best poets and musicians around the country.
The prize for the winner was a seat at the Lord's table. This idea continues today as the Bard (winning poet) is seated on a special chair.
Originally all bards were professional and had to be assessed and examined to enter.
In the 19th century a revival of the then lost Welsh tradition occured allowing anyone to enter into the Eisteddfod.
The National Eisteddfod Council was then created to manage, produce and organise the early event.
The Eisteddfod takes place in the first week of August every year, the location rotates around Wales. To show your town or city has held an Eisteddfod stones are placed on the site of the festival.
A Youth Eisteddfod is called an Urdd and contains the same elements of the National Eisteddfod but for under 16S. This is Europe's largest Youth cultural festival.
The elements include:
Poetry recital
Dramatic Presentation
Anthology of a Welsh Musical
15 mins of Entertainment
Creative Music Group
Rock and Pop
Public Speaking Team
Similarities between Wales and New Zealand:

and of course Rugby
