ENTRY to this year’s Urdd Eisteddfod is free – but tickets must be booked ahead of the week-long festival.
The announcement of free entry came after confirmation of £527,000 funding from the Welsh Government to enable free entry to the Urdd Eisteddfod, which will be held on the outskirts of Denbigh from May 30 to June 4 .
Welsh Language and Education Minister Jeremy Miles MS said: “I am delighted to support this wonderful festival by announcing that entry to the Urdd Eisteddfod 2022 will be free.
“I hope as many people as possible will take the opportunity to attend and celebrate 100 years of the organization.

“It is a testament to the work of the Urdd that so many adults reflect fondly on their experience of attending the Eisteddfod and competing when they were younger.
“The Urdd Eisteddfod is not only a cultural highlight of our Welsh calendar, but also a fantastic way for our children and young people to see and hear our language, speak it for themselves and take part in the many competitive and social events offered.”
Due to Covid restrictions, all visitors to Urdd Eisteddfod will need to book a free ticket.
