“Since 1933 Sydney Eisteddfod has been contributing to the evolving culture of Australia by nurturing the performing arts at a grass roots level and providing life-changing opportunities for young artists. With over 350 events, we encourage the development of artistic and creative skills, and offer some of the most prestigious scholarships in the Australian performing arts.

At the heart of Sydney Eisteddfod’s activities lies its flagship event: a competitive performing arts festival that runs from May to September. Throughout this period, the organisation provides a stage for singers, dancers, actors, musicians, composers, bands, choirs, and orchestras to showcase their talents in some of Sydney’s premier venues.”

Eisteddfods are a way for young performers to put their skills to the test, meet fellow like-minded students, build on their portfolio of experiences and most of all…have fun.

Post-Covid we are all enjoying a return to live, social, in-person events and the opportunity to be in front of an audience again is palpable.

Last year when the Sydney Eisteddfod reopened, General Manager Annette Brown spoke to cutcommonmag.com where she had this to say, “In my experience, performance without an audience isn’t really performance. We can’t wait to hear the wonderful sound of applause after a performance, and we know that our entrants can’t either! A prize or scholarship is just an added bonus.” Read the full article HERE
