A new archdruid has been installed in Wrexham as part of National Eisteddfod ceremonies in Wrexham. The proclamation ceremony was held to celebrate that the north Wales town will host the 2011 National Eisteddfod.

Poet and playwright T James Jones, whose bardic name is Jim Parc Nest, won the National Eisteddfod crown twice, and was the chaired bard at the Flintshire Eisteddfod in Mold in 2007. He succeeds the previous archdruid Dic Jones, who died in 2009.

This year's National Eisteddfod will take place from 31 July-7 August in Ebbw Vale, Blaenau Gwent, on the site of the former Ebbw Vale steelworks.
