How to Enter - Entries, Schedule and Rules

We are now accepting entries for our 2024 Eisteddfod, except for Dance entries which will open on 2nd June.

1. Please ensure that you read the following document:

The 2024 Schedule of Sections Offered (PDF) which includes the General Conditions of Entry and the Eisteddfod Competition Rules. This document contains a list of all the events into which you can enter (known as 'sections'), and specifies any special restrictions or requirements for particular sections. You may enter into as many items you wish to that you are eligible for.

2. Proceed to the Stardom system to lodge and pay for your entries. Please remember to order a printed Programme so that you will know the dates and times when you will be performing. Entries for 2024 close on 30 June. Some disciplines or sections may close earlier if they fill quickly. (Note: Dance entries have not yet opened, and typically close on the same day that they open, which is scheduled for 2nd June.)

On the day of your performance, please arrive at the registration desk for check-in, with a copy of your music/script (if applicable) for the adjudicator no later than 20 minutes before the commencement of the session your section is rostered for. We cannot guarantee that other entrants will turn up, and whole sections have occasionally been cancelled due to withdrawals.

(Please note, if your discipline provides an accompanist and you intend to make use of their services, you must make contact with the accompanist at least 2 weeks prior to the scheduled performance. The accompanist may decline to accompany an entrant if this courtesy has not been observed).

The following are tentative dates (subject to possible minor changes) for when the disciplines will be timetabled, and the confirmed adjudicators:
