A programme and wordbook for the Eisteddvod and Cambrian Concert, held at the Argyll Rooms, London on 6 May 1829.

This was a two-part performance of Cambrian vocal and choral music with some instrumental solos and an orchestral overture at the beginning of each act, given by Miss Paton, Miss Love, Miss Betts, Miss Byfeld, Madame Stockhausen, Masters Smith and H. Watson, Mr Braham, Mr Broadhurst, Mr Collyer, Mr J. Smith, Mr Fitzwilliam, Mr Parry Jun and Mr J.O. Atkins (vocal), Mrs Anderson (piano), Madame Stockhausen, Mr J. Parry jun. and Mr O.

The programme begins with ‘Particulars of the Concert’, which includes a complete list of the orchestral ensemble. It also includes an extensive list of the Patrons, Officers and Members for the event and a printed Address, given by Griffith Jones (Hon. Sec.), which provides some context for the Royal Cambrian Institute, under whose auspices the event was given.
