The Eisteddfod 2018 will be a whole new experience to the traditional festival held in a field. Exploring a new concept, using top quality venues and working to attract a new audience to the festival and the Welsh language in Wales’ capital city.
Held in Cardiff Bay, the wide and long roads of Lloyd George Avenue will be transformed into a welcoming Maes.
The Wales Millennium Centre will host the competitions providing the audience with an unforgettable experience.
Try something different from the traditional Maes and join us for a festival with a difference in one of the most iconic parts of our capital and country.
