The 72nd City of Tamworth Eisteddfod continues this week at various locations across the city.
Music sections - which includes such items as choirs, piano performers and bands - started on Monday after the conclusion of the dance sections.
From Friday and through the weekend, performers of all ages will take the stage at Tamworth Regional Conservatorium of Music's Chapel Theatre in morning, afternoon and evening sessions.
Speech and drama sections will begin on Monday morning and will conclude with the championships on Thursday morning and afternoon, with all sessions to be held in Wests' Diggers grand ballroom.
Entries into the eisteddfod come from across the state.
The event, which incorporates speech and drama, music, dance and mature-performer sections, is run by volunteers.
Adjudicators are brought in from across Australia to provide their feedback and decide on prizewinners.
