Bridgend county to host 2017 Urdd National Eisteddfod
Bridgend is to host the 2017 Urdd National Eisteddfod, the county council has confirmed.
The Welsh-language arts festival will run from 29 May to 3 June at Bridgend College's Pencoed Campus.
The council approved the six-day youth event which it hopes will bring 100,000 visitors and £6m to the local economy.
Cabinet member councillor Phil White said it was "a unique opportunity to promote the county borough to a national audience".
The 2015 Urdd National Eisteddfod will be in Caerphilly from 25 to 30 May.
