The first Eisteddfod was held in 1945 at Jerusalem Chapel, organised by an enthusiastic group of local ladies. This inaugural Eisteddfod proved to be a great success and went on to become the annual event we know today.

The Eisteddfod is held on the second Saturday of February and attracts competitors from all over northern and central Wales to its day and evening sessions. Over the years many singers and recitationists who went on to achieve fame competed at Abergynolwyn early on in their careers.

Substantial prizes are offered, with silver cup awards in certain competitions. In maintaining the standards the Eisteddfod has over the years been blessed with respected adjudicators, musical accompanists of high calibre, and hardworking secretaries and committee members. The village children get the chance to compete against determined and experienced competitors from distant parts. The Eisteddfod is maintained financially by a combination of grants from various official quarters, donations from supporters and of course the cash in the form of entrance charges to the event itself. Abergynolwyn Eisteddfod, through the reputation it has rightly gained and the hard work put in by its backroom staff, will surely go from strength to strength, promoting Welsh culture within our community and further afield.
