Eisteddfod ready to rock
Monday, 31st March, 2008
Budding rockers will get their chance to perform on the big stage later this year at the BH Eisteddfod.
The BH Eisteddfod Society, which held its annual general meeting earlier this month, has decided to include a section for rock bands at this year's event. Bands will perform in one of two sections: one for newly formed bands, the other for groups that have been together for over a year. This year's Eisteddfod will be held on August 23 and will feature the usual sections of Speech, Drama, Choral, Vocal and Dance, which was re-introduced last year.
A Brass Section will be specifically for beginners with less than two years' tuition. The sections will be 12 years and under, 16 years and under and adult beginners. BH Eisteddfod Society office bearers for this year include: Joan Roper (president), David McGrath (vice president) and Pauline Rauert (secretary).
