Yesterday, I visited the Urdd Eisteddfod in Denbigh with my family. It was fantastic to be back on the maes for the first time since 2019 as both the 2020 and 2021 eisteddfodau unfortunately had to be cancelled due to Covid.
It was such a positive and uplifting atmosphere, and I loved the fact that the Urdd experimented with different formats meaning that all children and young people had the opportunity to perform on the main stage as there were three pavilions and no prelims.
The Urdd plays such an important part in normalising the use of Welsh in our everyday lives, and it is great to see them going from strength to strength in their centenary year. Here’s to the next 100!
