I am delighted to send my best wishes to everyone taking part in the Sydney Eisteddfod.
For over eight decades, this wonderful event has presented the perfect opportunity for participants to embrace and promote the arts and cultural sector.
Iconic events with such a proud and rich history bring depth to our State’s vibrant identity.
The Sydney Eisteddfod is an inspiring celebration of our talented young people, and I know that all participants will gain an even greater passion for their chosen artistic field by simply being involved.
On behalf of the NSW Government, I congratulate all competitors, and wish everyone attending an exciting and enjoyable 2016 Sydney Eisteddfod.
