The 66th Llangollen Eisteddfod will be opened this Tuesday by Terry Waite CBE and springs to life as the performers parade through the town in a brilliant array of colour and sound.

Since 1947 Llangollen has staged one of the worlds most inspirational cultural festivals and each summer nearly 4,000 performers preform in a riot of singing, dancing and colour.

On Wednesday the line up includes Alison Balsom, Nicola Benedetti and Lesley Garrett along with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The climax of the festival will be on the last evening when The Choir of the World competition takes place and when choirs from all over the world will be competing for the Pavarotti Trophy.

Over the years many world famous artists have preformed at past Eisteddfods and these have included Luciano Pavarotti, James Galway, Jose Carreras, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and Joan Baez.

Experience the thrill and excitement of the Eisteddfod and explore the Llangollen Canal on a Canal Boat Holiday from Blackwater Meadow, Whitchurch or Wrenbury.

Currently we have some brilliant last minute savings for Canal Boat Holidays from our locations at Whitchurch, Wrenbury and Blackwater Meadow.
