DAY four of the International Eisteddfod held in Llangollen is set to one of the most colourful – particularly out on the field – as peace chants and creative workshops take centre stage.

Guests will discover what peace means to people from all around the world with the likes of the Southern Shaolin Temple Warrior Monks set to be one of the most mesmerising and unique groups on show.

Elsewhere on the outside stages, visitors will be able to take part in dance workshops with NEW Dance, join in with folk music with the GOGS and acoustic music with singers Sonya Smith, Mair Thomas and Chris Greve throughout the day.

The field will come alive with the sound of world music, International Groups, Circus skills with Panic Circus and much more and guests will also be able to celebrate the WCIA Young Peacemakers Awards, as well as witness the bespoke artwork from the young people of Plas Madoc.

New this year is the creative space where visitors can tell, listen to and exchange stories about the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.

The Eisteddfod’s international competitions on show at The Pavilion today include Senior Children’s Choir, A cappella Group, Open Folk Solo, Vocal Solo (age 16-19), Voice of Musical Theatre and the announcement of the Children’s Choir of the World results.

Into the evening from 4.30pm, international participants come together at the much-anticipated ‘The Gathering’ – providing an entertaining exchange of dance and culture.

Special guests MABON host the show, bringing their distinctive, multi-award winning Celtic music to the stage. International performers will join together in a vibrant carnival of cultures to showcase the very best from across the globe.

The magical Procession of Nations will weave its way through the audience in a vivacious display of international unity and friendship. The unique founding values at the heart of the event will be commemorated with the poignant Peace Message and the annual Rotary Peace Award.

Following this, the outside stages come alive once more but this time with South American and Spanish vibes with the Synergy Live Band, gypsy jazz band Kibitz and Rockabilly group Hellfire Devilles all performing.
