Mid-Wales Housing Proud Sponsors Of The Urdd National Eisteddfod

Powys based Mid-Wales Housing Association is proud to be sponsoring the Crowning Ceremony at this year's Urdd National Eisteddfod hosted by Brecon and Radnoshire at the Royal Welsh showground, Builth Wells on 28 May to 2 June 2018.

The Eisteddfod is one of Europe's largest youth touring festivals with over 15,000 children and young people competing and attracts around 90,000 visitors each year.

The prestigious Crowning Ceremony will take place in the 1,800 seater Pavillion on the Friday of the Eisteddfod week. The crown was designed by the pupils at Ysgol Uwchradd Llanfair ym Muallt and crafted by Dan Cuthbertson out of oak, copper, silver and brass.

Shane Perkins, Mid-Wales Housing Association's Chief Executive said, "Mid-Wales Housing is very proud of its Welsh roots and it's promotion of the Welsh language and are delighted to be sponsoring the Urdd National Eisteddfod this year. The eisteddfod is an amazing showcase for the enormous talent that exists amongst young people in Wales.

Mid-Wales Housing would like to congratulate the many children who have taken part in the Eisteddfod this year from the area rounds right through to the Eisteddfod next week and would like to wish the Urdd and the children competing a very successful 2018 Eisteddfod.
