Llangollen International Eisteddfod - Trophies


The International Trophy was designed in 1947 by T.B Huxley Jones, F.R.B.S., principal of a school of sculpture at Aberdeen, who had spent part of his early years in Summerhill, Nr. Wrexham.

It was an inexpensive trophy for the festival committee. Mr Huxley Jones generously gave his services and the Festival President W. Clayton Russon contributed the  cost of casting copies of the trophy for each of the competitions. 

The International Trophy

The Eisteddfod motto which is incorporated in the design of the Trophy ("Byd gwyn fydd byd a gano. Gwaraidd fydd ei gerddi fo.") was composed by the Welsh poet Emeritus Professor T. Gwynn Jones, D.Litt., C.B.E. 

An English translation is "Blessed is a world that sings, Gentle are its songs."
