The National Eisteddfod will go ahead in Tregaron next year, it has been confirmed.

The festival has been postponed twice because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Elin Jones, Chair of the Executive Committee, said "it’s going to be an Eisteddfod to remember."

She added: “We’ll be starting our events slowly and cautiously, as we all get used to meeting face to face again.""And as we start organising different activities, we’ll be remembering those who’ve suffered, everyone we’ve lost and those who’ve lost loved ones due to COVID-19 over the past eighteen months."

The Eisteddfod will begin on the 30 July and finish on 6 August next year.

The enthusiasm for a special Eisteddfod is certainly still very much alive, according to Betsan Moses.

"We’re currently looking at the Maes and the artistic content, and look forward to publishing more information over the coming months."

"We've also received over 250 additional enquiries about caravan pitches, and we’ll be getting in touch with everyone over the coming weeks to let them know whether we’ve got enough space."
