Thornbury Eisteddfod


Did you know that Thornbury has its own Eisteddfod?
It has classes in singing, speech and drama, choirs, piano, orchestral instruments and family groups.
The Eisteddfod is a celebration of the great range of talent in the local area.
Taking part in a competitive festival can be an enjoyable and encouraging experience especially as there are professional adjudicators judging the classes.
It provides a platform for young performers so if that's you why not have a look at the syllabus and enter a class or two?
For more information click below or pick up a copy of the syllabus from The Town Hall, Thornbury.
