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.
