Sir Tom Jones to headline Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod

“Sir Tom Jones kicks off Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod with a star-studded lineup”

Welsh superstar Sir Tom Jones is set to kick off the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod with a bang on Tuesday evening. The six-day festival, which draws in 50,000 fans to the Denbighshire town, features a star-studded lineup including Bryan Adams, Paloma Faith, and the Manic Street Preachers.

Sir Tom Jones, who recently turned 84, will be making his first appearance at the event, which has been running for 77 years. The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, held every July, began in 1947 as a way to bring healing after World War Two, with choirs from seven different countries competing.

More than 400,000 competitors from over 140 nationalities and cultures have performed on the Llangollen stage since its inception. The festival also includes a Parade of Nations, where locals and visitors come together to dance, sing, and play musical instruments.

This year’s festival promises to be the most high-profile yet, with a lineup that includes jazz artist Gregory Porter, singer Katherine Jenkins, Nile Rodgers, and Jess Glynne. Despite the big-name acts, the Eisteddfod remains true to its core message of peace and competition at a high standard.

If you’re interested in attending, tickets for the headline shows and daytime events are still available on the eisteddfod’s official website. Don’t miss out on this exciting celebration of music and culture in Wales!
