Central Coast Eisteddfod

Welcome to the CCE!

Welcome to the Central Coast Eisteddfod! This is our 47th year of operating an Eisteddfod on the NSW Central Coast and we are looking forward to a wonderful year.

The Central Coast Eisteddfod is a competitive event which invites entrants of all ages and levels to showcase their talents in a number of disciplines including instrumental (piano, strings, brass and more), dance (solos, duos or troupes), popular and classical vocal, and speech and drama. Entrants compete against other performers in the same age category in front of a live audience and an adjudicator who assesses their performance.

Not only is the Eisteddfod a fantastic opportunity to get some performance experience under your belt, it is also a great way to get some unbiased feedback on your performance with the possibility of nabbing a trophy or 2. 

Come and have some fun competing with others of the same age and watching some of the best showcases of talent on the Central Coast!

Please be assured that all our events comply with NSW safety regulations and COVID health requirements.

The Central Coast Eisteddfod began in 1975 as a result of three arts loving locals, Don and Lil Turner and Bill Wallace approaching the Gosford Lions Club. The Lions Club kindly gave their support and The Central Coast Eisteddfod began. Don and Lil have since passed away but their Eisteddfod legacy continues.
