Frân Wen at National Eisteddfod in Cardiff


Steddfod 2018

We’ve got an action packed week of events and performances down at this year’s Eisteddfod in Cardiff as part of the Pentref Drama programme.

One of the week’s highlights will be the second instalment of Anweledig, Aled Jones Williams’ gripping drama which will be performed deep underneath the Neuadd Ddawns (Eisteddfod’s Dance Hall) at Portland House every night from Monday to Friday.

On the final Saturday of the festival, as part of the Mas ar y Maes prorgamme, we will be hosting a reading of a new drama from Gwïon Morris Jones at the Theatr y Maes (in the Wales Millennium Centre). Gwïon is one of the artists under Egin, our artist development scheme.

We also have a wide range of activities for young people of all ages down at Caffi’r Theatrau (based at Caffi Sïo opposite WMC). Pop over to say hi!
