Three Ways You Can Get Involved

We need your help to make the Eisteddfod Archive an even greater resource from which to tell the Eisteddfod story.

Here’s how you can help:

Become a volunteer

Come and join our small team

We welcome help with all our activities, including:

  • Digitisation of records, tapes, documents and photographs: there’s a huge collection of audio-visual material.
  • Cataloguing and indexing: helping others access the collection.
  • Researching the archive: discovering what happened, who did what, why and what happened next.
  • Telling the story: talking, writing, editing, podcasts, videos, blogs and vlogs, social media, making displays.

Tell us about other websites

We really want to make links with other organisations which hold historical materials relating to the Eisteddfod, for example competitors’ websites.

If you know of any, please email us at

Please contact us by e-mail, post or through the website before sending us any physical or digital items.

Anyone with any material or information relating to the Eisteddfod can help us to build up a bigger picture of its history.

Here’s how:

  • Donate the material to the Eisteddfod
  • Let the Eisteddfod have material on permanent loan
  • Allow us to make a copy of your stuff and then return it

We also would be interested to hear your personal stories, whether it be as a competitor, volunteer or audience member, or for example childhood memories of a school visit or participation.

Once we have replied to your initial contact, your material can be shared using the online form below, or by email, by post, or by file transfer. For stories, please include any photographs that help to illustrate your story, with details of what the images contain. If your photos depict people, you may need to get permission from them.

The archive will take good care of your donations, but please note that anything donated we may use for the benefit of the Eisteddfod, and that it will be fully accessible to anyone searching the archive, for example through North East Wales Archive.

You may contact us:

  • Through the contact page.

Please give us as much information as you can about possible submissions, especially what it is, its date and its condition. For oral history, tell us what you’d like to talk about.

BUT REMEMBER: Please contact us by e-mail, post or through the website before sending us any physical or digital items.
