Talent and tourism
THE 118th Heritage Queensland Eisteddfod came to a close last night after the end of the adults’ competition.
More than 800 competitors from 345 entries descended upon Maryborough for the competition, bringing song, dance, drama and a much-needed tourism boost to the Fraser Coast.
The week-long celebration of the performing arts featured a wide program including a massed choir of all 800 performers on Saturday night.
The eisteddfod was held at the Brolga Theatre, beginning with the children’s competition on April 14.
The Easter weekend events exhibited a broad range of local amateur talent of all ages going up against the best Queensland has to offer.
