The annual York Interhouse Eisteddfod provides a platform for many talented newcomers and old hands alike. Every year a theme is chosen and all entries must reflect or link to this theme. This year the theme is Fire and Ice. Participants will be able to submit visual art or photography and they can also enter in a variety of performing arts categories such as singing, dancing, public speaking or drama. An exciting addition to the Eisteddfod this year is the category of short film. Every year Yorkies do us proud with their wide range of talent. A prestigious gala evening is held annually where parents, friends and supporters can share in this cultural festivity when the best performers showcase their talent, while an exhibition of the best visual art and photography lends further glamour to the evening.
