RESIDENTS and businesses in Llangollen are being invited to a public meeting ahead of this year’s International Musical Eisteddfod.

Representatives from both the volunteer team behind the festival and co-promoters Cuffe and Taylor will lead the meeting to answer and address all questions covering subjects such as traffic management, noise alleviation measures, and access to the site.

The meeting will take place at 7pm next Tuesday (June 4) at Llangollen Town Hall.

Chair of the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, Professor Chris Adams, said: “This summer we have an exciting programme lasting a month.

“It includes additional concerts with live music promoters Cuffe and Taylor, who have a track record of putting on successful major events across the UK.

“The public meeting - the fourth we've held since last year's Eisteddfod - will be an opportunity for Llangollen residents to get the latest information, as we gear up for the Eisteddfod.

“It’s important to us to keep local residents in the loop, to ensure the impact on our town is positive.”

Numerous steps are being taken to maintain a safe environment for the general public during event days, including a one-way system in certain areas.

A dedicated phoneline is also being launched to allow residents to contact the Eisteddfod team with any issues during the festival.

Some of the world’s biggest artists will head to Llangollen this summer. 

Bryan Adams arrives in the town on June 18, followed by Simple Minds, Kaiser Chiefs, Manic Street Preachers and Suede, BRIT Award-winning artist Paloma Faith and disco legends Nile Rodgers & CHIC.

The summer events will finish with a concert by Madness on Saturday, July 13.

The headline concerts are built around the core Eisteddfod week which returns for its 77th year, from July 2 – 7 and features concerts with Tom Jones on July 2.

This is followed during the week with Welsh folk superstars Calan, Royal Harpist Alis Huws, Britain's Got Talent semi-finalists John's Boys Chorus, West End stars Kerry Ellis and John-Owen Jones, the return of GRAMMY Award-winning Gregory Porter and a Gala Concert with mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins.
