Countdown to Carmarthenshire Eisteddfod begins in earnest
The 2014 Carmarthenshire National Eisteddfod is getting close.
Work is under way preparing the site at Festival Fields, Llanelli, for the Festival taking place from August 1-9.
The Eisteddfod is returning to the county and the site for the first time since 2000.
Carmarthenshire County Council is looking forward to welcoming around 150,000 visitors to the county for a week to remember and to celebrate the Welsh language and culture.
The council’s executive board member with responsibility for the Eisteddfod Councillor Keith Davies said: “I'm looking forward to the Carmarthenshire National Eisteddfod, and to see this spectacular event returning to the county. It is an honour for us in Carmarthenshire to be hosting the Eisteddfod."
You can visit the Eisteddfod’s website, www.eisteddfod.org.uk if you would like more information about the festival and the week’s events.
The main Eisteddfod Maes will be on the Millennium Festival Fields off Sandy Road as it was in 2000. This is where the iconic pink pavilion will be built at the beginning of July and host the majority of the competitions and the concerts.
Building on the site is scheduled to be ready for the last week in July for the rehearsals, a week before the Festival itself.
