National Eisteddfod 2019 Proclamation Festival

Arfon and Lucinda were proud to represent the History of Deganwy Group at the Conwy County National Eisteddfod 2019 Proclamation Festival on 7th July 2018. They joined hundreds of people representing local organizations, and paraded through the town on a gloriously sunny day.

The Proclamation Ceremony was then held outside Bodlondeb, culminating in the announcement by Archdruid Geraint Llifon that his successor will be Myrddin ap Dafydd, poet and founder of the Gwasg Carreg Gwalch publishing company in Llanrwst. He will take over from Geraint Llifon next year, and this is especially fitting as of course next year’s Eisteddfod will be held in Llanrwst.

The History of Deganwy Group is pleased to support the Eisteddfod, and is always open to suggestions from members of other ways to get involved. Keep an eye out for future events!
