The London Welsh School will compete at the National Eisteddfod Finals
Children from a school in Stonebridge are celebrating after qualifying for the finals of a literature and performance festival.
The London Welsh School will compete at the National Eisteddfod Finals in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
Dubbed the ‘Welsh X-Factor’, the competition is a week long performance and music festival which celebrates the Welsh language and all things unique to Wales.
There are school and regional rounds before the National Finals, which take place next month.
Julie Sullivan, Head Teacher of the London Welsh School, said: “Living in London but still feeling part of Wales is an important cultural feature of the London Welsh School.
“In Wales it’s a child’s rite of passage to compete in this traditional competition and it’s amazing to see how the children in our school develop their confidence, language and performing skills as a result. The children look forward to competing each year and have lots of fun doing so.”
