National Eisteddfod 2012

This year, the Vale plays host to the National Eisteddfod 2012, held at Llandow from 4-11 August.

The National Eisteddfod is Wales’ leading festival held annually during the first week of August.

The Eisteddfod Festival, the pinnacle of the Welsh cultural calendar, it travels from place to place, alternating between north and south Wales giving communities across the country a chance to welcome up to 160,000 visitors over an eight day period.

An eclectic mix of old and new, the traditional and the modern, the Eisteddfod is a celebration of Wales, its culture and its language. Combining ceremonial and official activities with a dynamic, young-spirited and welcoming festival, we offer something for everyone – whatever their ages and interests.
