Welcome to the

Minsterley & District Eisteddfod Website



I've been fortunate enough to experience the qualities of the Eisteddfod in two very different capacities, as a performer and a spectator.

Supporting my nieces, who from an early age competed in both
choral and solo classes - eagerly cheering from the back of the hall and
waiting with great anticipation for the adjudicator's comments! Then the
privilege of bringing two of my choirs as invited guests at the closing Sunday
night concert. I have very fond memories of some exciting performances.

This unique festival is of huge importance for the community,
and should be extremely proud of its continued growth and success - especially
at a time when so much of our educational and performance organisations face
such tough financial pressures and monetary cuts.

The committee and stalwart team of helpers and volunteers who
plan, organise and stage the Eisteddfod, work tirelessly throughout the year to
ensure its success. Their passion and commitment to its ethos and values is
amazing. Central to this is their passion of giving an opportunity to young
people and adults alike, to hone and develop their individual skills - a
platform of the highest standards on which to perform.

On behalf of the Eisteddfod team I'd like to thank you the
audience, parents, families and friends of the people taking part for your
support in helping keep this gem alive and thriving in the most difficult of
times. Long many it thrive and flourish and continue to be a highlight and gem
of the counties annual arts scene.
