Rare footage of the First International Eisteddfod in 1947 is now available for viewing at the National Library of Wales.
A CINE film showing life in Llangollen in the late 1930s and 1940s with unique footage of the first International Eisteddfod in 1947 has been made public.
The film was shot by watchmaker the late Mr Caesar Hughes.
His son, local solicitor Gwilym Hughes, says he believes it is the only surviving footage of the first festival, set up to bring nations together through song after the ravages of war.
The film will be publicly shown at a special open night organised by Llangollen Historical Society (Hanes) on April 7 at The Hand Hotel.Retaled Film Links
