Indeed the furnace will be on fire next week with over seventy thousand competitors singing, acting, performing, dancing, cooking, rocking (battle of the bands) and much more. The talent of Wales will be seen in an area that is a key part of the growth of the language with the twentieth school in the Capital opening on the Hamadryad Park site, Hamadryad School. This is the nearest Welsh school to the field.
The Eisteddfod is a competition and so I would like to offer Nelson Mandela’s words as an aid to all competitors;I never lose, I either win or learn.
Here then is a simple plea, come and visit the Eisteddfod in Cardiff Bay.
From the best stage in Wales,
Talents will be bubbling,
The bay will be dancing,
To the sound of children having fun
O’r llwyfan gorau yng Nghymru,
Bydd doniau yn byrlymu,
Bydd y bae yn dawnsio,
I synau plant yn cystadlu a joio
