Only Men Aloud's Wyn Davies, presenter at this year's Llangollen International Eisteddfod, continues his reports from the festival.

Yesterday was the first day of competition here at Llangollen and I was rushed off my feet. The Eisteddfod truly started at a gallop. It was the day of the youth choirs, always one of my favourite competitions.

Ever since working with our own male youth choir, Only Boys Aloud, I've been passionate about giving young people the stage to display their talents. As you can see from the picture, I've been spending time with the choirs gauging their mood pre-performance and then grabbing them for a quick chat as soon as they come off stage, and all in all there were plenty of happy faces.

I even managed to pick up a few Irish dancing moves (I use the words 'pick up' very loosely) during the course of the day. I doubt I'll be heading over to the Emerald Isle to give a master class any time soon!

All in all, even though the heavens opened from time to time, it was a great day here on the maes and reminded me why I've always loved coming to Llangollen. Time to put the feet up now, wring out the socks and prepare for the rest of the week!
