The FRIENDS of Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod will begin their annual fundraising for the 2019 event with a coffee morning at Llangollen Memorial Hall today, Tuesday March 26.
All are welcome and entry is just £1 between 9.30am and midday.
You can go along and enjoy a tea or coffee and treat yourself to something from our cake stall, try your luck on the tombola or pick up a bargain in our bric-a-brac sale.
The FRIENDS organisation is a separate charity from the Eisteddfod and has been supporting the event for almost 45 years raising over £500,000 in this time.
Members of FRIENDS come from all over the world and play an important role is spreading the Eisteddfod’s message and appeal.
Members also benefit from priority booking, news and updates throughout the year and have their own hospitality area on the Eisteddfod field during the week, which is a great place to meet new and old friends.
Chair of FRIENDS Barrie Potter said “We are delighted to begin our annual series of coffee mornings and all proceeds will be going towards the Eisteddfod Bursary fund. This fund offers financial assistance to international visitors coming to Llangollen such as the wonderful Mother Touch children’s group from Zimbabwe who charmed the crowds both on and off the field with their performances last year."
