All adjudication sessions will be presented at the Roodepoort Theatre, 100 Christiaan De Wet Road, Roodepoort.

To provide for possible challenges, participants may submit special request pertaining to availability before the closing date for entries to admin@eisteddfod.co.za. We will attempt to accommodate all requests submitted in advance, but please note that given the particular demands of this competition, we cannot give any guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all requests. 

In order to facilitate the adjudication process, events are scheduled according to the participant’s grade (e.g. it does not make sense to schedule a Gr R participant with a group of Gr. 6 learners). For this reason and in the interest of the participant, we will be reluctant to allow any rescheduling of events.

Performance dates will be published on the Online Entry platform as soon as it becomes available.
