Coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic.
Hello friends of Enoggera Eisteddfod,
Sadly, with no end to the current restrictions on gatherings in sight, the committee has had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Enoggera Eisteddfod.
We are all incredibly disappointed by having to do this, especially as it is our 60th anniversary and we intended some celebrations. We expect that you will all be disappointed as well, particularly those who are 18 years this year and it will have been your last time competing with us.
However, in order to complete the receipt of entries, then arranging programme, prizes, adjudicators, accompanists etc in time, we need to start work now, and we can have no confidence at this time that we will be able to proceed.
We will keep our mailing list for next year so that we can be in touch then. If you know of any others who may be interested in the Eisteddfod next year, please ask them to contact us and we will add them onto the mailing list.
In the meantime, we wish you all the best through this difficult time and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in 2021.
What is the Enoggera Eisteddfod
The Enoggera and District Eisteddfod has been an annual activity since its inception in 1960. It runs in August every year.
It provides an opportunity for young people up to 18 years of age to perform in front of an audience and to get feedback on their performance from highly qualified adjudicators in a friendly and safe environment.
The eisteddfod relies on volunteers and sponsors to remain viable and to keep entry fees as low as possible. If you can help in either way, please contact the secretary Laurel Muirhead.
Please email the secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Stay tuned for Eisteddfod 2021 information.
