Carwyn Connects with Eisteddfod

28 Jul 2017 03:59 PM

Visitors to this year’s National Eisteddfod in Bodedern, Anglesey, will be able to put questions directly to the First Minister, Carwyn Jones, as he holds a Carwyn Connect event at the festival.

The Carwyn Connect events give people the opportunity to ask the First Minister questions, face to face, on any issues which affect them or their local community. 

The hour-long session will be at the Welsh Government’s stand on the Maes at 2pm on Monday, 7 August.  Those interested in attending are encouraged to register on the Eventbrite website.  Questions can be submitted in advance via email to or at the event itself.

The First Minister said:

“I’ve held a number of Carwyn Connects across Wales over the past two years and there has been a lot of positive discussion and debate at each one. I’m pleased to be able to hold an event at the National Eisteddfod for the first time.  I know that there is always interesting debate at the Eisteddfod and I’m looking forward to hearing what issues will come up. I hope that as many of you attending the Eisteddfod are able to come along to the question and answer session and I look forward to meeting you all.”
