Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod souvenir programme released for people living in or visiting the Wrexham area

A bumper souvenir programme has been released ahead ahead of the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.

Some of the biggest names in music will be descending on the town in the coming weeks as the event prepares for its biggest festival to date.

The Souvenir Programme for the 2024 Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod will be available at the Llangollen Tourist Information Centre in Castle Street, and the Llangollen Museum in Parade Street.

The bumper 116-page, bilingual programme will be officially launched at the Eisteddfod’s final fundraising event before the festival; a special Auction and Entertainment evening on Friday 14 June at Llangollen Town Hall.

This year, the programme will also cover the additional concerts outside of Core Eisteddfod Week, starting with the Bryan Adams on Tuesday 18 June, and finishing with Madness on Saturday 13 July.

The full-colour programme mainly showcases the Core Week Eisteddfod, including details of the famous Parade of Nations, the Family Fun Day, details of the international competitions featuring over 3,000 competitors from over 30 different countries, and much more.

It also includes two pages for each major additional concert with exclusive content and artist-approved photos. This includes the Jess Glynne, Nile Rodgers + CHIC, Paloma Faith, and Simple Minds.

The Souvenir Programme has doubled in size this year due to the Llangollen Eisteddfod holding its biggest festival ever.

This year’s event will start on Tuesday 18 June, when rock icon Bryan Adams comes to town.

The concerts finish on 13 July, with a huge show by Nutty Boys, Madness.

The Core Eisteddfod Week will take place between 2-7 July and features the debut of Tom Jones, folk heroes Calan, royal harpist Alis Huws, Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalists Johns’ Boys Male Chorus, West End stars Kerry Ellis and John Owen-Jones, GRAMMY award-winning Gregory Porter and a Classical Gala Concert featuring Katherine Jenkins.

Bronwen Lebbon, Secretary of the Llangollen Eisteddfod’s Marketing Committee, worked with Pam Hughes and Issy Richards for months to produce the programme.

She said: “Our Souvenir Programme is our biggest and brightest for years and matches the larger and extended festival, with concerts starting in just a few days’ time.

“It includes full information about all of our competitions and our extra concerts from 18 July onwards.

“It is your essential guide and contains all you need to know about the 2024 festival.”

The brochure, priced at £5, is available from the Llangollen Tourist Information Centre on Regent Street and the Llangollen Museum on Parade Street. It will be also be available at the Llangollen Eisteddfod shop on the field for all evening concerts and the Core Eisteddfod Week.
