“The 2019 National Eisteddfod festival will be held in Llanrwst, it has been announced.
Chief executive Elfed Roberts, said it would be 30 years since the festival last visited the Conwy Valley.
The announcement was made following a meeting of the National Eisteddfod Council in Aberystwyth on Saturday.
Llanrwst was chosen over Abergele, also in Conwy county, to host the event and council leader Gareth Jones congratulated the town.
“We’ll be supporting the Eisteddfod committee with their arrangements over the next 18 months as they prepare for their event,” he said.
Trystan Lewis, who chairs the local committee, said: “Even though the Maes will be in Llanrwst, it’s going to be an Eisteddfod for the whole county, and the challenge I’ve got is to get everybody on board – Welsh speakers and non Welsh speakers – to be a part of this exciting Eisteddfod.”
