Why Llangollen?

0907eisteddfodparade241Every year, competitors describe Llangollen as a ‘once in a lifetime experience.’ Others enjoy it so much, they return again and again!

Taking part in the festival’s town parade, when thousands of spectators line the streets, and being part of the Procession of Nations is a “one-of-kind” spectacle that sets Llangollen apart from many other festivals.

The competitions are known the world over and the Choir of the World is one of most coveted prizes in the choral calendar.

Take part, make friends, and feel special – that’s why competitors come to Llangollen!
