It’s all gone a bit Welsh

In Welsh culture, an Eisteddfod is an institution and festival with several ranked competitions, including in poetry and music. Hywel Teifi Edwards defined the earliest form of the Eisteddfod as a competitive meeting between bards and minstrels, in which the winner was chosen by a noble or royal patron.

We won’t be going quite that far today, but there will be free Welsh cakes on offer with every hot drink, and a game of “guess the castle” on the big screen.
