Message from His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret'd) Governor of New South Wales and Mrs Linda Hurley

Linda and I are honoured to support the Sydney Eisteddfod, an iconic New South Wales cultural tradition which has launched the careers of many national and international performers over the past 83 years.

From May to September, our city of Sydney comes alive with the young and emerging talent showcased across a range of song, music, dance, speech and drama genres, adding to the city's vibrant and flourishing arts scene.

As passionate advocates for the arts, we are delighted to support the Sydney Eisteddfod as Patrons and look forward to the upcoming performances.

Congratulations to the organisers, supporters and volunteers whose contribution has made this Eisteddfod such a wonderful celebration over many years.

Best wishes to all participants in the 2016 Sydney Eisteddfod!

Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret'd)                                Mrs Linda Hurley                                       Governor of New South Wales
