Round-up of action from Eisteddfod's first full day

llanblogger has been capturing some action from the first full day of the 2023 Llangollen Eisteddfod:

* The day began with a performance in Centenary Square of the Greek performing arts group Kyklos who are based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Entertainment by various groups will continue there each day of the Eisteddfod.

* The Eisteddfod's children's day traditionally features two morning concerts specially arranged for hundreds of primary school youngsters from across north Wales. This includes the Peace Message from the children of Llangollen to their counterparts across the world which was this year delivered in Welsh and English by pupils from Ysgol Dinas Bran in Llangollen. Amongst those performing this morning during the concerts was the Cantilon Chamber Choir from Canada.   

* Also on the entertainment bill for the children's concerts was a storytelling session on a dinosaur theme. This was accompanied by a trio of musicians from the New Sinfonia orchestra which will be performing in this evening's (Wednesday) concert in the Pavilion, entitled White Flower. This will also feature a choir of Ukrainian refugees.

* Above and two pictures below: throughout the week international choirs competing in the Eisteddfod are giving recitals at St Collen's Church. Today it was the turn of the Azusa Pacific University Choir from the USA who were last at the Eisteddfod in 2015. They will be competing in a number of choral competitions later this week.   

* Steffan Hughes, who appeared in Tuesday's evening concert alongside Alfie Boe with his group Welsh of the West End, sang on the Globe stage near the town end of the Eisteddfod field this afternoon, performing a number of hit numbers from hit musicals and film.
