2021 Royal South
Street Eisteddfod

Welcome to Australian oldest running Eisteddfod and home to Australia’s rising stars.

Over the last 130 years we have been running our wonderful competitions annually in the heart of goldfields in historic town of Ballarat in regional Victoria.
The Royal South Street team worked hard to find alternative safe options for competitions in 2020, including video entries across some disciplines in place of live performances. Unfortunately, with the ever evolving covid-19 landscape, it made it impossible to run any live competitions resulting in our 3rd cancellation in our history.
We were excited to still offer vocal performances via video entries for adjudication in 2020. Thank you to all our wonderful vocalists who participated, the performances were a pleasure to watch.  Unfortunately due to copyright restrictions we are unable to share them on our website.
We know that 2021 will be an amazing year of competitions and the Royal South Street team are now busy planning for the year ahead and working with Her Majesty’s Theatre and our other venue providers to ensure the safety of our competitors, coaching and teaching staff, families, audience, volunteers, adjudicators and RSSS staff!
Thank you again for your support especially during the difficulty of cancelling in 2020 and we look forward to seeing you all for our 130th Eisteddfod!
