The Urdd National Eisteddfod is a touring festival that attracts around 90,000 visitors per event, a vast TV and radio audience, as well as hosting hundreds of stalls. 

Between 29 May – 3 June 2017, the six day festival will be held at Bridgend College’s Pencoed campus, offering excellent trade, sponsorship, tender and promotional opportunities for local businesses in Bridgend County Borough.

With over 80 hours of live S4C coverage broadcast to over 400,000 viewers, over 200,000 listeners tuning in to Radio Cymru’s on-site shows, the BBC’s English medium highlights programme attracting around 570,000 viewers, as well as daily articles published in the Western Mail and Daily Post, the Urdd Eisteddfod offers fantastic opportunities for companies and organisations wishing to promote their brand, products and services to a large Welsh audience.

In order to be able to continue to invest in their services, the festival is keen to attract a wide range of sponsors and supporters at the event and will, therefore, tailor packages to reflect individual company interests, marketing priorities and budgets.

There are also a variety of options for trade stand holders wishing to participate, ranging from hiring a basic wooden trade stand or a bespoke structure, to hiring a space in the main exhibition area or surrounding grounds for a company’s own stand to be exhibited.

There are also opportunities for local businesses to tender for the on-site services required throughout the festival and these are listed on the main Urdd website, as they become available.   

It is estimated that the Urdd Eisteddfod will bring £6 million to the local economy, as over 15,000 children and young people from across Wales compete for a place in the main pavilion, as well as in occupational competitions such as hairdressing, journalism and cooking.
