A FAMILY Fun Day is set to take place at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod this summer. 

The Eisteddfod will be opening its gates for a Family Fun Day on Sunday, July 7, featuring children’s TV presenter Andy Day.

Andy will be presenting a lunchtime concert in the pavilion, which is being produced in association with Music for Youth, and will feature young musicians from across the UK, as well as some of the Eisteddfod’s visiting groups from overseas.

Either side of the lunchtime concert there will be outside stage performances, featuring international competitors, young musicians, local bands, and another appearance from Andy, as he presents his Dinosaur Raps!

There will be a wide range of other activities for all the family to enjoy, including interactive workshops, along with retail traders, and a variety of food and drink outlets.

This is all part of a revitalised Llangollen Eisteddfod, which features artists such as Tom Jones, Gregory Porter and Katherine Jenkins during its Core Eisteddfod Week (2-7 July), along with additional shows either side from global superstars such as Bryan Adams, Simple Minds, Paloma Faith, Manic Street Preachers, Jess Glynne, and Madness.

The Leader:

Dave Danford, Artistic Director of the Eisteddfod, said “The line-up of artists we have coming to perform in Llangollen this year is incredible, and alongside the global superstars we have the best homegrown Welsh talent as well, including Calan, royal harpist Alis Huws, and Johns’ Boys’ Male Chorus.

"We also have over 3,000 competitors from 32 countries coming here to compete, many of whom will also be performing during our Family Day on Sunday 7 July.

"This day will be a real celebration, with a full programme of entertainment to suit all ages, along with a lunchtime concert in the pavilion, which is being produced alongside Music for Youth, to showcase some of the UK’s finest young musicians.”

“Andy Day has been a familiar face on our TV screens for over 15 years, and we can’t wait to welcome him to the Eisteddfod, as he brings his infectious enthusiasm to proceedings.”
