The inaugural Grand Annual Eisteddfod of Australasia was held in 1891 right here in Ballarat, attracting some 260 entrants who performed across 10 days of competition. Is it possible organisers then, dared to imagine, that their vision for fostering the performing arts would continue into the twenty first century?
Only once have we ever had to cancel the Eisteddfod (during WW2) before 2020, so this certainly has been a challenging time for everyone including South Street as we all navigated the changing conditions of COVID -19 on our community and the world.
Unfortunately, the ever evolving covid-19 landscape meant a cancellation of all live performances for 2020.
Vocal video entries were submitted and adjudicated, thank you to all the wonderful vocalists who submitted their performances. We certainly enjoyed watching them, sadly though, due to copyright issues we were unable to publish them on our website.
We hope that 2021 will be an amazing year of competitions and the South Street team are now busy planning for the year ahead. Thank you everyone for your support and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.
