The Minister took a tour of the Eisteddfod site, including visits to the International Pavilion, which benefitted from £1m of Welsh Government for its 2009 refurbishment, and the outside field stages to watch folk groups from all four corners of the World perform.

The Minister said,

“The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is a wonderful example of inclusivity and multi-culturalism with so many different nationalities mingling in their traditional costumes and so many languages spoken around the field.

“It is also a marvellous opportunity for us to welcome the world to Wales and for us promote such a positive image of Wales on the international stage. It makes a significant contribution to the local economy, and I am delighted to be here."
