Young visitors to the National Eisteddfod have been urged to bring valid identification.

National Eisteddfod officials have urged youngsters heading to the Maes B festival to ensure they have tickets and valid ID.

Maes B is part of the week-long Eisteddfod taking place at Boduan near Pwllheli this week and features late night performances by over 20 of the main Welsh language bands as well as sets by popular DJ’s.

It has grown in popularity in recent years and tickets sell well as soon as they are released for sale.

Maes B spokesperson Elan Evans said tickets have nearly all sold and she urged any youngsters, over the age of 16, planning to attend with their camping gear to have purchased tickets before arrival.

Elan said: “We still have day tickets available and because we have an open stage for the first time in several years we have the capacity to accommodate more people but not all who may want to pitch their tents so please make sure you have the appropriate ticket.

“We are also urging the young people who plan to attend to have a valid ID. These include a driving licence or passport

“We will be operating and enforcing a strict Challenge 25 policy at Maes B. If you can’t provide valid identification when asked, you will be asked to leave the site and come back with your ID.

“So if you are lucky enough to look 25 or younger, please make sure that you bring an acceptable form of identification.”

Valid ID

Valid forms of ID include an in date photographic driver’s licence or provisional licence; a valid passport and please note that out of date passports will not be accepted or a Proof of Age Standards Scheme Card which showing the PASS hologram.

Maes B opened last week with sets from DJ’s and performances by Mellt and Los Blancos with Candelas topping the bill.
