The first modern National Eisteddfod was in Aberdare in 1861, in the old Market Hall, that the first modern day eisteddfod was held.

  The Eisteddfod was to visit the Cynon Valley again  in 1885 (Aberdare), 1905 (Mountain Ash), 1946 (Mountain Ash) and 1956 (Aberdare). And in 1940, during World War II the eisteddfod was broadcast on the radio from Mountain Ash.
