This is the brilliant moment passengers on a National Eisteddfod bus burst into Calon Lan

It’s the annual showcase of Welsh talent but visitors to the National Eisteddfod proved that beautiful singing isn’t just limited to the pavilion.

For passengers on a shuttle bus ferrying them from the Maes to the car parks in Abergavenny town centre broke into a beautiful rendition of Welsh hymn Calon Lan – after doing a spot of Icelandic chanting.

It was filmed by photographer Arwyn Roberts who said: “Everyone was in fine spirits and the singing was spontaneous. No one took the lead but it turned out we were singing the hymn in three voices.

“Among those on the bus were opera singer Bryn Terfel’s parents, Hefin and Nesta, former Pobol y Cwm actor Gwyn Elfyn, Lleisiau Mignedd conductor Ceren Lloyd and actress Bethan Dwyfor as well as me.

“I asked the driver if he’d heard anything like it before and he said ‘yes, last night, it’s been like this all week’.”

More than 75,000 people have attended the Maes in Abergavenny this week to enjoy competitions in the brand new pavilion.

The National Eisteddfod continues until Saturday, August 6.
