Delyn MP David Hanson has met with organisers of the proposed 2016 Urdd Eisteddfod which is to be held in Flint between May 30 and June 4th 2016.
The event, to be held in Flint High School playing fields for that week, is the major youth event for the Eisteddfod in Wales and has been welcomed by many local people.
Mr Hanson MP said:
“The Urdd is a great event to bring to Flintshire and to Flint in particular; many thousands of visitors will come to Flint and Flintshire during that week and the eyes of Wales will be on the work of the Urdd in Flint that week. It’s a great opportunity to both support the Welsh language and to showcase Flintshire to Wales and beyond.
The Urdd now welcomes local people to get involved in any way they can through volunteering, sponsorship or general support.”
