This year's in-person Urdd Eisteddfod was postponed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. ‘Eisteddfod T’, the Urdd’s alternative digital festival took place instead online from Monday 31 May to Friday 4 June 2021.
Whilst we were so disappointed to not physically be on the Maes this year, we were delighted to take part in Eisteddfod T again and were proud sponsors of the Eisteddfod T app and the prestigious Prose Composition Ceremony.
We also hosted a student recruitment event to demonstrate the University’s Welsh language offer, which was chaired by Annell Dyfri, our Welsh Language Officer.
Additionally, to coincide with the launch of Cardiff University’s new Welsh language strategy, students from our School of Journalism, Media and Culture gathered and produced five pieces of content across the Urdd week, promoting and discussing Y Cynnig Caerdydd - The Cardiff offer, which can be enjoyed on Twitter and Spotify.
The 2022 Urdd Eisteddfod is scheduled to take place in person in Denbigh from Monday 30 May – Saturday 4 June 2022. Find out more about Eisteddfod T and the Urdd Eisteddfod.
