The Urdd Eisteddfod

Eisteddfod yr Urdd Maes
The Urdd Eisteddfod attracts more than 90,000 visitors each year to celebrate the Welsh language and culture.

We will once again attend one of Europe's largest youth festivals, which is taking place this year in the market town of Llandovery in Carmarthenshire from 29 May to 3 June.

The Urdd Eisteddfod is an annual Welsh-language youth festival celebrating Welsh culture and language through competitions and performances.

We will have our own location on the Maes alongside a jam-packed schedule of performances and interactive and educational activities designed to inspire young people about the opportunities available in higher education.

More information on our week-long events at the Eisteddfod can be found in our 2023 activity programme.

The Urdd's 2023 Message of Peace and Goodwill: Anti-racism

This year's Peace and Goodwill message by the Urdd has seen Cardiff University students collaborate with the Welsh charity to shine a light on anti-racism.

For over a century, on 18 May, the young people of Wales have drawn global attention to themes that are important to them while sharing a message of peace to the rest of the world.

The Urdd's 2023 anti-racism message, created at a workshop in Cardiff earlier this year, calls on people to "encourage kindness, teach acceptance, and call out racist remarks and prejudices."
