Welcome to website of the Eisteddfod Council of Queensland.
The Eisteddfod Council, through the annual Queensland Eisteddfod, provides important and valuable performance opportunities for aspiring and established artists across a range of disciplines including choral, vocal, speech and instrumental.
At its meeting on Tuesday night (17 March), the Management Committee of the Eisteddfod Council of Queensland voted to cancel the Queensland Eisteddfod for 2020 in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Even before the further reduction in permissible gathering sizes, the general uncertainty was such that many competitors and choir members would not have been able to attend, compromising the event.
We are working with the staff at the Brolga Theatre to try to arrange the return of the Queensland Eisteddfod to Maryborough as soon as possible, so please stay tuned for announcements of venues for coming years’ competitions.
In the meantime, we thank all competitors, the Fraser Coast Regional Council, the staff of the Brolga Theatre and Convention Centre, the Maryborough Eisteddfod association, and all other sponsors for their support of the event, and look forward to being able to band together next year to hopefully celebrate a return to “normality”.
