Since 2006, a competition has been held to choose the next Bard of Glastonbury. Each chaired Bard holds the post for one year and a day, before setting up a competition to elect a successor. The Chair refers to the position but, in some cases, as in Glastonbury and Bath, there is a physical ceremonial chair which is passed down from bard to bard. There is also a blue ceremonial robe and the ceremonial Silver Branch of Ynys Witrin, which are passed on with the title.
