ROYAL SOUTH STREET TO GO AHEAD

AS COVID-19 restrictions change almost by the day, Ballarat's Royal South Street Eisteddfod continues to push ahead in preparations for the three month festival. While overall entry numbers are understandably slightly down on previous years due to previous and on-going restrictions, a number of categories have also seen rises in numbers of competitors. It has been a challenging time in putting together a program and gaining entries due to the ongoing nature of the COVID-19 crisis. The timetable remained fluid due to ongoing state government regulations and it now appears unlikely that audiences will be able to be at a number of events.
