John Owen-Jones starring in Eisteddfod’s Opening Concert

The Urdd National Eisteddfod’s Opening Concert this year will star John Owen-Jones and will take place on Sunday, 29th May at 8:00 pm.

John Owen-Jones comes from Burry Port and last year played the lead role of Jean Valjean in the 25th Anniversary Tour of Les Miserables which culminated in a special concert at the O2 Arena in October. He is currently playing the role of the Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s theatre in London.

John Owen-Jones said, "I'm delighted to be singing at the Opening Concert of the Urdd National Eisteddfod. I love performing in Wales and can't wait to be on stage at the pavilion, which always has a great crowd generating an infectious atmosphere. It's just amazing to realize how many of today's Welsh performers have graduated from competing in the Urdd Eisteddfod to performing on the West End Stage and I'm sure the Eisteddfod this year in Swansea, will highlight young talent once again. Long may it continue!"

Tickets are from £10 and are available at or by calling 0845 257 1639.
