The first Painting and Brass Band Competitions are introduced, with 15,000 people making their way to City Oval to watch the closing of the Band Contest. The band competitions prove to be so popular that schools are given the afternoon off so they can attend.

At the end of the Eisteddfod’s first decade, entries total 3500 and prize money totals 200 pounds.
