Urdd National Eisteddfod

We will have a presence at one of Europe’s largest touring youth festivals as it visits Denbigh this year.

The 2022 Urdd National Eisteddfod, which runs from 30 May to 4 June, is expected to attract up to 100,000 people over the week, many of whom will take part in competitions throughout the week including song, dance and performance.

We are delighted to be supporting some of the Urdd’s most high-profile events, including sponsoring the Bobi Jones Medal for Welsh Learners, as well as having a major presence on the Maes, or Eisteddfod site.

During the week of the Urdd Cardiff University will have a host of activities available for visitors, from exploring microplastics with the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, a talk from Cardiff University alumni now working for S4C and ITV to discuss their experience of university and moving into journalism and media, to exploring Cardiff via virtual reality with the Widening Participation and Outreach team.
