Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod 4 – 9 July 2023

Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is a week-long arts festival in North East Wales, which for 76 years has brought together performers from across the globe to share their love of song, dance and spoken word.

Llangollen 2023 opens with a bang on Tuesday 4 July: Alfie Boe and musical theatre super-group, Welsh of the West End perform in an evening concert created just for Llangollen. Guy Barker’s Big Band perform on Friday 7 July; guaranteed to raise the roof with a formidable power-house of top-drawer jazz players, guest soloists include: Tommy Blaize, Vanessa Haynes, Clare Teal and Giacomo Smith.

Mid-week the Eisteddfod’s commitment to peace is highlighted through The White Flower: Into the Light, a large-scale classical music concert on Wednesday 5 July. Massed choirs and NEW Sinfonia join performers from Wales, Bosnia and Ukraine for a concert of remembrance culminating in a message of peace and hope. On Thursday 6 July daring cross-genre multi-instrumentalists Propellor Ensemble present an immersive theatrical experience blending contemporary music, folk, dance and dynamic live visuals; inspired by the wonder of the natural world.

Two incredible live finals form the closing weekend, Choir of the World and Stars of Tomorrow. The very best choirs, dance ensembles and operatic stars feature on Saturday 8 July whilst the next generation of talented performers compete on Sunday 9 July.
