Maldwyn 2024 Urdd Eisteddfod has finally begun and the whole of Powys is delighted to welcome children, young people, families and friends from across Wales to Meifod.

Today, Monday 27 May, marks the first day of the week-long youth festival and Powys County Council is delighted to have a prominent presence on the Maes (field) of the Eisteddfod.

We are using this week as an opportunity to showcase Powys to those attending - through local product tasting, tourism and culture to Welsh language promotion and activities as well as promoting recruitment opportunities at the council.

Cllr James Gibson-Watt, Leader of Powys County Council said: "A very warm welcome to Meifod and Powys. It is an honour to host this year's Urdd Eisteddfod at Meifod and to welcome children and young people from across Wales to participate in this unique and special festival.

"Powys County Council is incredibly proud to support this year's event. I'm looking forward to the week ahead and encourage children, young people, families and friends from across Powys to take the opportunity to visit the Eisteddfod near Meifod this week.

"I am very pleased that the provision of free entry for families on a low income is available, as it will enable every family and child in Powys to have the opportunity to experience the Urdd Eisteddfod."
