The Inverell Eisteddfod Society is delighted for the return of the Eisteddfod after last year's cancellation.
Dance begins on Sunday May 16 and finishes on Wednesday May 19.
The adjudicator for dance is Kay Flynn who trained with the Queensland Ballet School and has also had international training in all areas of dance.
All events will take place in the Inverell Town Hall and cover a variety of dance styles including classical, modern, national character, tap, jazz, hip-hop and contemporary.
There are also sections for school dancing groups, Bobby Wig explained.
"Entries have been very good this year and include individuals and groups from a wide area of the New England region," Mrs Wig said.
The music, speech and drama programme begins on Sunday May 30 at 3pm, with mainly senior vocal events including the Open Choirs sections. Robyn Ryan OAM from Port Macquarie will adjudicate all music, speech and drama.
Robyn is a choral specialist and the Artistic Director of Hastings Choristers.
She runs her own private studio specialising in piano and voice.
Schools sections will be on Monday May 31 and Tuesday June 1. The eisteddfod will finish on the Tuesday afternoon.
"Although entries for music, speech and drama are fewer this year, there are strong sections for solo piano and vocal," Mrs Wig explained.
The general public are warmly invited to watch the eisteddfod and to support the competitors.
Entry fee is $5 adult and $3 concession.
The annual eisteddfod concert will be on Tuesday June 8 at 6.30 p.m.
