CANCELLATION OF 2020 NORTHERN BEACHES EISTEDDFOD
19 March 2020
19 March 2020
In view of the continued global spread of COVID-19, the Northern Beaches Eisteddfod committee is disappointed to announce that this year’s Eisteddfod, scheduled for May 2020, has been cancelled.
We feel that it is our responsibility as a community organisation to make sensible decisions to prevent the further spread of infection amongst the wider community.
The decision to cancel the event, rather than postpone to a later date, has been made due to the increasing uncertainty as to when it may be safe to run such an event.
We are sorry to all entrants that you will not have the opportunity to perform, but the health and safety of competitors, families, teachers, accompanists, adjudicators, and volunteers comes first.
Entries for the 2020 Northern Beaches Eisteddfod have recently closed. All entrants will be refunded in full. Please note that this may take up to a few weeks to be processed.
Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to the next Northern Beaches Eisteddfod in 2021.
President, Northern Beaches Eisteddfod

The Northern Beaches Eisteddfod was founded in 1953. What began as an elocution teachers initiative for students, the Eisteddfod has had several titles and expanded over the past 60 years to include art forms like hip hop and pop singing as well as being spread across multiple venues. The Eisteddfod gives people on the northern beaches an opportunity to perform in pursuit of further study and excellence. The Northern Beaches Eisteddfod not only provides encouragement and assistance to young talented singers, dancers, actors and musicians, it also presents the wider community with opportunities to see them perform.
