Rhondda Cynon Taf Community Project

The Eisteddfod team, over the recent months, have been working on delivering micro-local pilot events in Rhondda Cynon Taf with the aim of promoting yr iaith Gymraeg. The Community Project has been primarily targeting people who are new to the language, have lost touch with the language or haven’t started learning yet.

You can find out more about the Community Project by reading the latest edition of the Eisteddfod 2024 Community Newsletter.
