2018 Events

Hi Everyone,

The 2018 Competitions are about to begin and entries are now open for both Music and Dance.

The Majority of our Eisteddfod this year will again be staged at the Performing Arts Complex of Bendigo South East College and we appreciate the co-operation and assistance provided by the staff and students. Once again we envisage holding some special events in the Capital Venues which will include the Capital, Ulumbarra Theatre and the Bendigo Bank Theatre.

We are pleased to have the continued support of some generous sponsors and we are currently seeking additional sponsorship. Any business or individual who would be able to sponsor events such as the Leila Watson Memorial Championship or perhaps the Dance Stage Spectacular please contact us as we would be very appreciative of your patronage. Currently the Society receives its major financial assistance from the City of Greater Bendigo and the State Government via Creative Victoria which is greatly appreciated. Other sponsors, big or small, are needed to assist in helping this major Bendigo event continue to grow.

This Eisteddfod would not be as successful without the support of volunteers. We have some stalwart volunteers who assist every year and we always look forward to welcoming new volunteers so please give us a call if you can be of assistance. The music competition is held on weekends commencing in early May and runs until the end of June when we commence on a very large programme for dance which runs daily over the June/July school holidays – we would welcome your company and support!!!!

As some of you would be aware, we now have our own office where we are bringing together our historical records, our trophy stocks. The Mews is located at the rear of Bendigo Tourism, Pall Mall, Bendigo. (We would like to use the Office for regular ‘Working Bees” to assist with the preparation of documentation prior to the Eisteddfod and cataloguing our Historical records. If you can be of assistance please contact us – there is always jobs to be done!
