Inner West Eistddfod


This year 2022 will be the thirty eigth performance of the Inner West Eisteddfod and this important cultural event has grown from small beginnings in 1985 with less than 100 entrants to over 500 aspiring artists taking part.      The Inner West Eisteddfod gives an opportunity for many performers either solo or in groups to showcase their talents and to learn from the expert adjudication provided by experienced professionals in their respective fields.   A small but dedicated group of volunteers work tirelessly to continue to provide an opportunity for our aspiring young artists to showcase their talents.  

The Marcus Edwards Violin Prize was established by his widow, the noted composer & Burwood NSW resident, the late Dr Miriam Hyde AO, OBE. Marcus Edwards was a passionate violinist, a craftsman of violin design and was a founding member of the Strathfield Symphony Orchestra.  The Edwards family gave concerts in their Burwood Heights home to raise funds for local charities.   The IWE Inc. is grateful for the continued support of this event by the  Edwards family.
