Final reminders

Competitors are requested to please submit all of their own-choice music at once, prior to their first session competing. Please ensure that the Copyright Declaration Form (1 only per competitor) and Selection Identification Forms (for each selection) (found on pages 23-4 and 25, respectively, of the Schedule of Events) are completed and attached as necessary.

Session and Season Tickets

Session and Season Tickets are now on sale through the Empire Theatre box office. Tickets can be pre-purchased by phone or online at the following links (note that an additional transaction fee of $5 applies, however), or can be purchased in person at the Empire Theatre from now up to and including the Easter weekend.

The booking links are as follows:

Season Tickets allow entry to either competition venue at any point over the Eisteddfod, while Session Tickets allow entry to either venue (or both), but only for the given session time (morning, afternoon, evening) on the given day. Those attending more than two sessions will find Season Tickets the more economical option.

Children’s tickets are for school-age children (5-17 years). Members of Youth Choirs do not require a ticket to enter the venue for relevant sessions (ie. the Empire Theatre on the Friday afternoon and Saturday morning).

Eisteddfod Programme and Official Accompanists

Competitors are asked to check the following document for the scheduling of their entered items, and to contact the designated Official Accompanists to provide copies of their music. Contact details were emailed to all competitors on 6 March; please email us if you have not received this and require it.
