The 2017 Urdd Eisteddfod begins on Monday in Bridgend county.

The Welsh-language arts festival will run from 29 May to 3 June at Bridgend College’s Pencoed Campus.

When it approved the event, the council said it hoped it would bring 100,000 visitors and £6m to the local economy.

The festival, which has been running for nearly 90 years, includes activities, performances and competitions.
