The National Eisteddfod of Wales: A Visit to the Vale of Glamorgan

The National Eisteddfod of Wales in the Vale of Glamorgan (4-12th August 2012) was the second national festival for ‘The Snows of Yesteryear’ project. The wet weather at the beginning of the festivities meant that the Eisteddfod saw the return of the trusted wellington boot – a ‘must-have accessory’ for most summer events in Wales. As the week progressed, the clouds retreated and temperatures soared. Such variable weather was a natural conversation starter, which led to a natural sharing of memories of extreme weather (some recorded under ‘Community Interaction’) and promises of many more inputs to the blog.

*Thank you to everyone who visited the project on the University of Wales and National Library of Wales stands.*
