Super 40th annual eisteddfod
THE 2010 Gladstone Eisteddfod is just warming up, with performers and spectators getting right into all the action so far.
Four girls super-excited about this year are Mercedes Ash, Isabella Impiccini, Keri Schneider and Rebecca Harbourne, who yesterday competed in the stage show section.
They were full of excitement while putting on their costumes and rehearsing lines, but insisted they weren't nervous.
“I'm really excited, I love the stage shows,” Keri said.
All of the girls have been performing from a young age, some from the tender age of three years.
“It is just so much fun. You get to meet heaps of people and I have made so many friends,” Rebecca said.
They are all looking forward to the rest of the Eisteddfod as they will also be performing in the dance, singing, instrumental and speech and drama sections.
There is much more to come in the 2010 Eisteddfod spectacular, and now is your chance to come out and support some of the hot young talent in the region.
“My parents, neighbours, friends and everyone has been coming out to watch,” Keri said.
