Every summer since 1947 Llangollen has staged one of the world’s most inspirational cultural festivals. Each year around 4,000 performers and as many as 20,000 visitors converge on this beautiful small Welsh town and its Royal International Pavilion; to sing and dance in a unique combination of competition, performance, and international peace and friendship.

The competitions climax with the prestigious Choir of the World on Saturday evening, which determines the best overall choir of the event. In 2005, Luciano Pavarotti added his name to the competition in recognition of his appreciation of the festival and its influence on his career.
