: Chairman confident of success.

THE chairman of this year's Urdd National Eisteddfod (Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Urdd Gobaith Cymru Caerdydd a'r Fro), Huw Llywelyn Davies, is convinced that the location for the festival is amongst the best in recent years, in a convenient spot at the rear of Cardiff Castle, and close to the city centre.

``Cardiff is now a bustling city, full of vitality and it has had the opportunity over the past few years to open its arms to the world,'' said Mr Davies.

``It is my privilege to welcome you all, and I do so, confident that we will have an Eisteddfod to remember.

``It has been a constant battle over the years to sustain Welshness in the capital and the Vale of Glamorgan. But now there are definite signs that the tide has turned.''

Adding her welcome, the Eisteddfod's director, Sian Eirian, said: ``This is the first time for 17 years that the Eisteddfod has come to the capital, and we're delighted to have been offered such a fantastic central location.''
