We're proud that this year's Urdd Eisteddfod will be in Powys and look forward to welcoming visitors from across Wales to the Maes near Meifod from 27 May - 1 June. 

Close Welcome to the Urdd

This will be the first time since 1988 that the Urdd Eisteddfod has visited the area when it will be held on the fields of Mathrafal Farm by Meifod.

It is estimated that the Urdd Eisteddfod will bring £6 million to the local economy and 90,000 visitors are expected to visit the national festival between 27 May and 1 June 2024.

The council is delighted to be one of the Urdd Eisteddfod's main partners and we're working closely with event organisers to make it an event to remember.
