The Festival of the Performing Arts  (Languages)

 

The French, Jèrriais and Modern Languages Sections of the Jersey Eisteddfod now make up a competitive Festival of Performing Arts (Languages) which will be held in January.

 

In the light of the present pandemic a decision regarding the viability or otherwise of this Festival will be made in due course.

The Jersey Eisteddfod encourages its competitors to consider the words of Sir Walford Davies:  

 

"The ideal of the competitive festival is not to gain a prize or defeat a rival, but to pace one another on the road to excellence".
