The 2023 Schedule of Sections Offered (PDF) which includes the General Conditions and the Eisteddfod Competition Rules. This document contains a list of all the events (sections) into which you can enter, 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.

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.
