Our activities at the 2018 National Eisteddfod are taking on a local flavour as Cardiff hosts the country’s largest cultural festival.  There will be a range of talks, exhibitions, activities and discussion panels that have been inspired not only by Cardiff’s culture and history, but also its creativity and wildlife.

These will take place in the Cardiff University tent and across the Maes.
