Wales, who some associate solely with the famous town of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch and the British royal family, is seemingly not too interesting. However, this Celtic land has in fact much more to offer. One of these attractions is undoubtedly the Urdd National Eisteddfod festival, a kind of celebration of both Welsh culture and language, whose this year’s edition took place in Swansea.
Freedomes provided the festival with three dome tents (two Freedome F75 dome tents and one Freedome F110 dome tent), which had first been prepared in a way that allowed them to fit in perfectly with the festival’s landscape. Our spherical structures proudly bore the famous Cadwallader Dragon on their surfaces, thus becoming the embodiment of the festival’s idea; its goal is to establish in the youngest of minds that Welsh cultural heritage ought to find a place for itself even in a modern and cosmopolitan society.
Considering that during the festival over 90.000 visitors passed through our geodomes and (according to the statistics provided by the organisers) drank over 30.000 cups of British tea, Wales and its culture are doing fine, to say the least.
Although we’ve been to the festival and still can’t properly pronounce the infamous Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch, we do at least know that we may safely call our tents “pebyll anhygoel.”
