CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The National Eisteddfod of Wales (Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru), is an annual cultural festival, held at a different location each year; it is a competitive annual festival of music, literature and arts, and fosters the Welsh language. It is held in North and South Wales in turn. The Royal National Eisteddfod of Wales was held at Cardigan in the first week of August in 1976, organised by J. Idris Evans. Dyfed Archives organised an exhibition held in the Public Library, Cardigan, during the week of the National Eisteddfod and produced a Borough of Cardigan topic list.
