THE souvenir programme for the 2024 Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is now on sale.

It will be available at the Llangollen Tourist Information Centre in Castle Street, and the Llangollen Museum in Parade Street. 

The bumper 116-page, bilingual programme will be officially launched at the Eisteddfod’s final fundraising event before the festival; a special Auction and Entertainment evening on Friday 14 June at Llangollen Town Hall.

This year, the programme will also cover the additional concerts outside of core eisteddfod week, starting with the Bryan Adams on Tuesday, June 18, and finishing with Madness on Saturday, July 13. 

The full-colour programme mainly showcases the core week eisteddfod, including details of the famous Parade of Nations, the Family Fun Day, details of the international competitions featuring over 3,000 competitors from over 30 different countries, and much more. 

It also includes two pages for each major additional concert with exclusive content and artist-approved photos. This includes the Jess Glynne, Nile Rodgers + CHIC, Paloma Faith, and Simple Minds.

The souvenir programme has doubled in size this year due to the Llangollen Eisteddfod holding its biggest festival ever. 

This year's event will start on Tuesday, June 18, when rock icon Bryan Adams comes to town. The concerts finish on July 13, with a huge show by Nutty Boys, Madness. 

The core eisteddfod week will take place between 2-7 July and features the debut of Tom Jones, folk heroes Calan, royal harpist Alis Huws, Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalists Johns’ Boys Male Chorus, West End stars Kerry Ellis and John Owen-Jones, GRAMMY award-winning Gregory Porter and a Classical Gala Concert featuring Katherine Jenkins.

Bronwen Lebbon, secretary of the Llangollen Eisteddfod marketing committee, worked with Pam Hughes and Issy Richards for months to produce the programme. 

She said: “Our souvenir programme is our biggest and brightest for years and matches the larger and extended festival, with concerts starting in just a few days’ time.
