Welsh festivals

Discover the exciting and captivating events and activities we have in store for you during these Welsh festivals.

Tafwyl brings together the best of Welsh language music, arts and culture in the heart of Cardiff every year.

Held during the first week of August every year, the National Eisteddfod is a celebration of Welsh arts, language and culture.

The Urdd Eisteddfod is one of Europe's largest youth festivals celebrating Welsh culture and language.

One of the world's biggest and best literary festivals happens every year in late spring in the Welsh town of Hay-on-Wye.

We are looking forward to meeting visitors at these festivals so that we can share information about our work throughout Wales and beyond.
