Eisteddfod kicks into high gear

THE 57th annual City of Grafton Eisteddfod has well and truly kicked into action as ballet, tap and jazz students danced their way across the stage yesterday in a magical display of talent.

Organiser Diana Welch said all participants had demonstrated “strong and beautiful” performances and described the eisteddfod as “a wonderful opportunity for children to have fun and make new friends”.

Competitors will take to the stage daily, 8.30am-12.30pm, 1pm-5pm and 6.30pm-9.30pm.

The eisteddfod is held at the South Grafton High School.

Entry costs $4, all welcome.
