Recommendations have been made on modernising the National Eisteddfod.

The recommendations are focused on seven key areas:

  • location
  • competitive events and the festival
  • volunteers
  • the digital era
  • improving the visitor experience and increasing visitor numbers
  • collaboration between the Urdd Eisteddfod and the National Eisteddfod
  • the Eisteddfod’s sources of funding.

The Group was established in October 2012 by the former Minister for Education and Skills. They have now presented the final report to the First Minister for consideration.
