Appeal for Annual Friends Subscription
The Guernsey Eisteddfod Society was formed in 1921 and, from that year, except for the war, it has held a Festival annually to encourage the talents of the islanders, young and old, in French, Guernsey French, English Speech and Drama, Music, Artistic Roller Skating, Art, Craftwork, Needlework, Photography, Cookery, Literary Work, Shorthand and Typewriting, Flower Arrangement and Silk Painting.
The Eisteddfod receives a States grant which is a proportion of the rent we pay the various venues where the competitions are held, but each year the expenses of putting on this event rise. We therefore appeal for the largest possible number of Friends to support this annual Island Festival.
The benefits of becoming a Friend of the Society includes a free festival programme, free entry pass for all performing arts sessions and the exhibition (with the exception of the ticketed sessions) and priority booking for ticketed sessions.
Membership costs are as follows:
Single £30 (Senior Citizen £25)
Double £42 (Senior Citizen £36)
Family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) £54 (plus £6 for each additional child)
Single £300 (Senior Citizen £250)
Double £420 (Senior Citizen £360)
This is available to business houses at £138 per annum. A list of Corporate members will be published in the Programme. The corporate membership will have two complimentary tickets which will entitle the holders to free entry at all sessions of the Festival and to the Exhibition, and to two programmes.
We hope that you will feel able to help us to maintain and extend the Eisteddfod.

Become a Friend of the Guernsey Eisteddfod Society
If you could possibly use a Banker’s Order for your membership fee, it reduces the Society’s administration costs and ensures that even more of your contribution goes directly to supporting the Eisteddfod Society.
We hope that you will feel able to help maintain and extend this Eisteddfod Festival.
