We were all saddened to hear that the Tregaron Welsh National Eisteddfod had been postponed for this year till next. But the team at the Welsh National Eisteddfod have pulled together all their resources, creativity and partners to provide alternative Eisteddfod content to all their followers.
In their own words -
AmGen will make elements of the Eisteddfod available for people to enjoy during these difficult times. AmGen is the Welsh word for ‘alternative’… AmGen is a multi-platform project, which aims to reach everyone. By using different platforms, including traditional press and media, we hope our content is accessible to as many people as possible.
As the official week of the Eisteddfod approaches (1st - 8th August), here’s a timely reminder to all of you on how to get access to all that’s on offer from Eisteddfod AmGen -
Please use this thread to share information about interesting performances of content which you’ve seen, or items in the schedule which you think may be of interest to others on this forum. Diolch and ENJOY!
‘Attended’ my first ever Eisteddfod today by way of a learners coffee morning. I have to admit, the thought had previously terrified me (no place for a non- Welsh speaker I thought) but my opinion has changed dramatically, not least because of, well, you guys! (And maybe Aran’s book!) Anyway, I needn’t have worried! I didn’t understand everything but certainly enough to have a conversation of sorts with total strangers. Can’t wait for the ‘real thing’ now, I will visit for real and I will speak Welsh!
Diolch yn fawr iawn @Cetra listened to Lois Arnold last night. Have just listened to Mared Lewis. Really enjoyed her voice/pronunciation and wanted to know the outcome! Sign of a good author yn fy marn i. Fi a Mr Huws has been on my wish list for a while but I’ve still got other books to read yet.
