MORE ABOUT US

 

Each May Gulgong hosts the Gulgong Prince of Wales Eisteddfod. Gulgong is a New South Wales gold rush town which is located approximately 300km North West of Sydney and 30km from Mudgee.

 

Today Gulgong is a small town rich with history and with a population of around 2,000 people. It is a popular tourist destination which boasts a rich culture of music and annual community events like the Henry Lawson Festival and our own Gulgong Prince of Wales Eisteddfod.

 

The Gulgong Prince of Wales Eisteddfod was started by Gulgong Musical and Dramatic Society (MADS) in 1980. Gulgong MADS are an active performing group who work together to maintain the historical Prince of Wales Opera House located in Mayne Street Gulgong.  

 

Gulgong MADS developed the Eisteddfod as a suitable event to be held in their beautiful, historic Gulgong Prince of Wales Opera House.

 

Over the decades, The Gulgong Prince of Wales Eisteddfod has expanded and become an important cultural event for Gulgong and the Central West. The Eisteddfod has grown so much it is now held at two locations The Gulgong Prince of Wales Opera House and the Gulgong Memorial Hall.

 

The Gulgong Prince of Wales Eisteddfod is a subsidiary of Gulgong MADS. Our main aim is to raise funds for the continuing restoration of the Prince of Wales Opera House.

 

Known as the friendly Eisteddfod which kicks off the Eisteddfod season each year in our region, The Gulgong Prince of Wales Eisteddfod gives local children and those in our rural community an opportunity to showcase their talents in a range of creative arts.

 

Local schools and those across the Mid-Western Region also participate in a range of classes within the syllabus. On average, we have twelve schools participate in our Eisteddfod each year across dance, speech and music.

 

The Gulgong Prince of Wales Eisteddfod is run by a sub-committee with Gulgong MADS continued support. The Eisteddfod committee would like to thank Gulgong MADS for supporting this annual showcase of young talent.

All paper entries must be signed by a parent, guardian or teacher over the age of 18 years accepting all the rules and regulations as stated in this Syllabus. Entry fees will not be refunded after the relevant closing date.

  1. Cancellations / Alterations - The Committee reserves the right to cancel a class if there are fewer than three entries or to combine it with the next age group.  Prize money in any class may be lowered or not awarded if there are fewer than 4 entries or if the standard of performance is not adequate. The number of places awarded in a class may also be reduced according to the number of entrants.  The Committee has the right to amend the programme at any time, to appoint a substitute adjudicator, to divide or couple any class or award, and/or to alter competition times.

Age / Grade Limit - The competitor’s age or grade level is recognized as at the 1st May each year.  Date of birth/grade level (which is currently being studied) must be stated on the entry form where age/grade limits apply.  Where competitors of different ages compete in duets or groups, the age limit for entry to that class will be based on the age of the oldest competitor.  The Committee reserves the right to call upon any competitor or their teacher to furnish at the competitor’s own expense, proof of age, and to withhold any prizes until such proof has been obtained.
  5. Open - Means there is no age restriction, except where noted.

The Adjudicator’s decision is final unless a protest is lodged under Rule 19, in which case the Committee’s decision is final.  The Adjudicator also reserves the right to vary the allocation of prizes within a class, or if a satisfactory standard not be reached, to reduce or withdraw prizes.
