Eisteddfod Time in Patagonia

NEWS FROM THE CELTIC LEAGUE

It’s that time of year when you have the Eisteddfod – no not in Wales but in the Welsh speaking community in Patagonia.

There’s currently a series of articles from the Eisteddfod held earlier this month on the Facebook pages of our colleagues in the Patagonian branch of the Celtic League.

There are reports on the poetry, harp competitions dancing etc and also the performances given by the National Orchestra of Wales that visited venues in the Welsh speaking Diaspora and other venues in Argentina to mark this historic year.

The articles are in Spanish or Welsh but there is a translation facility available with each.

This is as indicated an historic year for the Welsh community in Patagonia because it marks the 150th anniversary of the founding of the first Welsh settlements.
