Two Wrexham businesses will sponsor this year’s Llanfest which will wind up this year's Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod on Sunday July 7.
Wrexham Lager’s involvement in the event goes back over 70 years, shown by the fact that festival organisers have found an advert for the brewery in the first official International Eisteddfod programme from 1947 (pictured below).
Mark Roberts from Wrexham Lager said: “The festival is without doubt one of the highlights of our calendar and we are proud to be one of its longest standing sponsors.“We have been supporting the ethos of the festival from its inception all those years ago, bringing diverse communities together to enjoy and celebrate as one.”
Llanfest was launched in 2011 as the eisteddfod’s finale party to introduce the event to new, younger audiences and attract festival-goers from across the country.
Tickets start at just £39 and go on general sale today (February 1).
This will see capacity increase to more than 5,200. As well as this, a tiered seating area will also be available in the middle of the arena.
