Entries for Gold Coast Eisteddfod now open

THE 2014 Syllabus has been released and entries are starting to roll in for the 33rd Gold Coast Eisteddfod.

The competition is the largest of its kind in Australia, and has grown from mere 600 competitiors in 1982, to over 70,000 in 2013.

Sections in this year’s August-September event include solo and group dance, piano, strings/wind/brass, instrumental groups, bands, orchestras, vocal, choral and special needs.


Eisteddfod General Manager Judith Ferber said entrants should register early so they don’t miss out.

“Entries are received from the south east Queensland region and indeed from all states of Australia,” Ms Ferber said.

“So it’s important that the primary and high schools, music teachers, dance studios and soloists jump online as soon as possible.

“Entries close on Friday 9 May and it would be an absolute shame for any of our stars of tomorrow to miss out,” she said.
