Corrections: National Eisteddfod of Wales

On 11 August 2022, we published a digital report and video on the following website

Having reviewed our output, we recognise that our output did not meet our editorial standards on accuracy, impartiality and fairness.

In particular, we wish to make the following clear:

  • Only one contributor was included in the item complaining that the shops in the town were empty. Another interview giving a different side of the story was not inlcuded.
  • There was not sufficient evidence to support the allegation that the National Eisteddfod, and its Chief Executive, were wasteful of expenditure. There was no evidence either that the Eisteddfod, and its Chief Executive, had been able to respond to these allegations.
  • That the Eisteddfod should have been given more detail and time to have provided a right-of-reply.
  • That we should have taken reasonable care to satisfy ourselves of all material facts and that these omissions were unfair to the Eisteddfod's Chief Executive and to the Eisteddfod as an organisation.

We acknowledge these points and apologise for these lapses in our editorial standards and S4C has removed its reporting.
