The WA Performing Arts Eisteddfod launched its 60th year at Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre last Friday.

The event hosted a number of life members along with past and present committee members.

WA Performing Arts Eisteddfod administration officer Angelique Bavich said this year’s eisteddfod would culminate in the 60th Anniversary Concert featuring past performers who have gone on to national and international success.

The concert will be held on June 23 from 7.30pm at BREC.
