Sing along and help celebrate 70 years of the NHS

* Your chance to sing along and help mark 70 years of the NHS. 

Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod will be joining the NHS choir, staff and musical stars from across the UK in a live singalong to celebrate the 70th birthday of the health service.

A one-off live ITV programme on Wednesday will capture the crowds in Llangollen coming together with celebrities in a bid to set a new record for the biggest live sing-along ever broadcast.

Llangollen's choral contribution will take place as the finale to the Classical Collection concert.
And in partnership with Pendine Park, the Eisteddfod is offering complimentary tickets to the  concert to salute hard-working NHS staff.

These tickets can be claimed by registering your details on the Eventbrite page here.

The Classical Collection concert will encapsulate the magic of the piano and the human voice.

It features the final of the International Voice of the Future competition, two-piano pieces from Eisteddfod musical director Vicky Yannoula and Peter Jablonski plus a showcase performance from Wrexham-based choir, the Sirenian Singers.

The pavilion will come alive with the Beatles classic With a Little Help From My Friends in the big sing-along led nationally by Colleen Nolan and friends.

The live broadcast links with other singalong sites across the country, including the famous Abbey Road Studios in London where the Beatles recorded many of their legendary hits.

A single of the song will be released on Friday with all proceeds going to support the NHS.
The festival will also be giving away free day tickets to all Welsh NHS staff on Thursday and will also give 20% off the Thursday and Saturday evening concerts.
During the day on Thursday the Eisteddfod will honour Olwen Williams OBE as Day President.

With a life-long inspirational career in medicine, Olwen will present her stories and memories of working in the NHS to crowds at the festival.

Eisteddfod chairman Rhys Davies: “Having worked as a GP within the NHS I fully understand and respect the wonderful work the NHS does.

"We are so excited to be supporting the nation’s celebration of the 70th anniversary of the NHS. It is a perfect synergy of values and even timings as the International Eisteddfod celebrated its 70th last year; the NHS has enriched all our lives with vital medical and our festival enriches lives though music."
