A pupil from Oswestry School has won a regional competition for the Urdd National Eisteddfod at Ysgol Dyffryn Banw in Llangadfan.

Harris Morgan-Booth placed first in the Year 7 to 9 class with his brass solo and he will now go through to the main competition held at the Royal Welsh showground, Builth Wells from May 28 to June 2 2018.

The Urdd National Eisteddfod is one of Europe’s largest youth touring festivals that attracts around 90,000 visitors each year.

Over 15,000 children and young people under the age of 25 compete during the Eisteddfod week in various competitions such as singing, dancing and performing.

They are the elite few from around 40,000 competitors across Wales who, like Harris, won their place following local and regional rounds held in the spring months leading up to the Eisteddfod.

Harris competed in the Eisteddfod last year and he was placed second in Wales for the Year 3 to 6 class.
