Morgan Jones and Elin Llwyd


Rondo Media for S4C, 27 March 2014 to 19 May 2018 (18 episodes in 3 series)

as Band Ieuenctid Cymru, 21 May 2016 to 21 April 2018 (3 episodes)


Wales isn't just the land of song. This was a biennial competition for brass, wind, and jazz bands. Heats show the range of each band, with the best returning for the final.

A youth section was added in 2016; this was held in 2017, independently of the main series.

Band Cymru was not re-commissioned for 2020; this decision was taken before the pandemic developed.
