Urdd National Eisteddfod

We had a presence at one of Europe’s largest touring youth festivals as it visited Denbigh this year.

The 2022 Urdd National Eisteddfod, which ran from 30 May to 4 June, saw 118,000 people visit over the week, many of whom took part in competitions including song, dance and performance. The Cardiff University stand was proud to host a number of choirs and performers for their practice throughout the week.

We are delighted to have supported 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 hosted a range of activities 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.

We are already looking forward to the 2023 Urdd National Eisteddfod, which is being held in Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, from 29 May until 3 June.
