Friends of the Llangollen International Eisteddfod

We have been able to give a donation to the Eisteddfod funds each year enabling the Eisteddfod to purchase equipment ranging from seats to computers, to understage speakers, to stage backdrops, to closed circuit TV for security and much more.
FLIME's emblem, using the United Nations colours of blue and white, depicts a pair of hands joined in friendship, typifying the friendship that both FLIME and the Eisteddfod have encouraged between performers, countries and members of the audience.
The Friendship is maintained in the 'Friends hospitality tent' during each Eisteddfod, where members meet, talk and enjoy their tea and coffee.
For many years 'Figaro' stood by the hospitality tent entrance along with the many faithful helpers who have welcomed friends over the years.
