Join our supporters who help make the Hamilton Eisteddfod a resounding success

Volunteer, donate, sponsor or advertise with us

The City of Hamilton Eisteddfod Inc is a not-for-profit organisation, and we rely on the generous contributions of our supporters to continue delivering a great fortnight of performance in Hamilton each year.

Thousands of volunteer hours go into organising and running our Eisteddfod, and we appreciate the valuable support of our Eisteddfod friends and community in helping make this happen.

We are proud to celebrate and nurture creative talent in our region. Your valued contributions help provide an opportunity for performers to compete in front of an audience, and receive feedback from professional and acclaimed adjudicators.

Your help also allows us to recognise the achievements of our competitors with a range of trophies and prize money.

This is an exciting time for the Hamilton Eisteddfod, as we grow our competitions and attract an increasing number of new visitors to Hamilton for the event each year. Please help us to continue this progress.

Hamilton Eisteddfod: Dancers


It takes around 2000 volunteer hours and 500 volunteer shifts to run the Hamilton Eisteddfod each year, so we’d be grateful for your help!

Our volunteers can take on a broad range of duties including running the registration desk, ushering, assisting backstage, selling tickets, serving at the kiosk and timekeeping. We train all our volunteers, and our experienced committee members are always on hand to help, so no previous experience is required.

We know our volunteers find it a particularly rewarding experience, but we always need more people to add to our roster.

If you would like to volunteer at the Hamilton Eisteddfod, please contact the committee to express your interest. We can let you know when our Volunteer Roster is ready for you to nominate your availability.


Your donation or bequest to the City of Hamilton Eisteddfod Inc will help us cover event running costs, and ensure the ongoing sustainability of the Hamilton Eisteddfod.

All donations, great and small, are very much valued by our committee.

Donations can be made by cheque, payable to the City of Hamilton Eisteddfod Inc, or electronic funds transfer (EFT) – please contact the committee for payment details.
