Performing Arts Festival

Own Choice material for Music, Speech & Drama is to be submitted on the day of the performance.
As the Civic Theatre and Riverway Arts Centre are not available to us this year, we have been obliged to adapt the Eisteddfod to suit the venues that are available.
C2 is a space at the back of the Civic Theatre building, Boundary Street. The entrance is on the South Townsville side.
The Townsville Choral Society Hall is on Sturt Street, above the cutting. Enter from Fletcher Street.
The Townsville Stadium is at the Murray Sports Complex on Murray Lyons Crescent. It also has another space called Stadium 2.

An eisteddfod (plural eisteddfodau or eisteddfods) is a festival of performing arts, visual arts and literature. It is a Welsh tradition that dates back to at least the 12th century.

Townsville Eisteddfod is open to competitors up to the age of 18 years. It is held annually in September. In a typical year, more than 400 competitive events (called "Sections") are held over 19 days. Altogether, these result in about 20,000 individual performances.

Adjudicators are selected for their qualifications and experience, and as far as possible, have no direct involvement with local competitors for at least 6 months before the Eisteddfod.

For information on competing, go to our "Competitors" page.

If you would like to help in the organisation of the eisteddfod, go to our "Volunteers" page.
