Hundreds look to wow judges at Tamworth Eisteddfod

HUNDREDS of students from across the region have flocked to Tamworth for the annual eisteddfod.

Music co-convener Todd Power has volunteered at the event for the past three years, and said it’s the joy it brings to the kids that keeps him coming back.

“It’s really good for kids to get out and see what other people are doing, it gives them a real boost to see what they need to work harder,” he said.

“I think one thing we try to do is even though it’s competitive we want it to be an enjoyable experience and we have kids that love dancing, and performing – it’s really lovely.”

The event showcases the best in dance, drama, choral speech, music, and a mature performers variety night – and parents and grandparents are in the audience cheering their loved ones on.

All of the sections are competitive, and scholarships are awarded to the best performers in each division.

The 71st Tamworth Eisteddfod will wrap up on June 22, for more information visit tamwortheisteddfod.org.au.
