Disney'sbig Dai!

Hundreds of Welsh people living in America were due to meet at Florida's Disney World for an annual festival this weekend.

The North American Festival of Wales is being held in the Orlando theme park in a bid to attract more families.

An eisteddfod, concert, seminars, and a banquet, as well as informal singing sessions, have been scheduled.

More than 800 people are expected to attend the festival, which also features a cinema showing Welsh films and a chance to buy Welsh produce.

Karen Ellis, from the Welsh National Gymanfa Ganu Association which has organised the event, said people from all over the USA were attending.

She said: 'We have people from just about every state - New York, Maine, California, Texas - everywhere.'

Cardiff author Peter Finch and Gareth Williams, who lectures at the University of Glamorgan, will appear at the festival.
