Tutus, tiaras and tiny tots

TUTUS, tiaras and tiny tots took to the stage at the 43rd Gladstone City Eisteddfod.

Dance was the first category on show over a six-week bonanza of performing arts.

Tahlia Downey from Wendy Barker Dance Studios said the eisteddfod was a chance to exhibit the results of months of hard work.

"It's a great opportuntity to show the community what we've been working on," she said. "Everything we've learnt comes down to this."

The display of local Gladstone talent will feature speech, drama, vocal and instrumental performances over the coming weeks.

Gladstone Regional Council Mayor Gail Sellers said the event was a great collaboration between sponsors, performers and volunteers. "Congratulations to this year's performers, their families, teachers and schools who have invested time to support this remarkable cultural tradition."

The eisteddfod is held at the GEC Marina Marquee.
