Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod Society treasurer, Bob Barnett, said he was impressed with the talent shown by entrants.

"It's marvellous for them to be able to do such a wide variety of performances," he said.

"Speech and drama is a great way for kids to build confidence and be able to get their message accross in front of a crowd. It serves them in later life as well.

"It's very entertaining. We're still encouraging the public to come along and watch."

The Eisteddfod will begin at 9am today at the Ipswich Civic Centre.
