Cardiff Festivals

Cardiff festival The Cardiff Festival is made up of many different events, which showcase the very best in theatre, live music, youth and children’s entertainment, funfairs and drama.

A firm favourite with family is the Cardiff Children’s Festival with its two days of magical fun, amazement and stunts, whilst drama takes over at the Museum of Welsh Life in the form of the famous Everyman Open-Air Theatre Festival.

For jazz lovers there is the Cardiff Worldport Festival, which guarantees a studded line-up of great international and home grown talent celebrating jazz and world music. There is more music on offer at the Summer Nights Concert at Cooper’s Field next to Cardiff Castle, which plays host to international stars such Sir Cliff Richard, Donny Osmond and Tom Jones.

Now in its 20th year and undoubtedly a focal point in the city’s cultural calendar, the Welsh Proms continue to bring in the crowds and are now a hallmark of the Cardiff Festival.

For a whole weekend of partying get along to the Cardiff International Street Festival in August when comedy and musical mayhem takes over the city centre. The action is focused around Queen Street and Working Street with the best in both home grown and international talent offering four days jam-packed with unforgettable entertainment. Evening entertainment can be found in the bars and restaurants in Windsor Place (off Queen Street) during the Fiesta Nights when music, dancing, food and drink take over the street.

For a taste of Caribbean culture the South Wales Intercultural Community Arts presents the annual MAS Carnival - a masquerade of hundreds of colourful costumed revellers in a celebration of the natural environment.

A strong rival to the Edinburgh and London film festivals, the Cardiff Film Festival showcases films that have not been shown before in Wales along with a number of premières.

The festival comes to a close in spectacular fashion at the Cardiff Big Weekend, which is now officially the UK’s biggest free outdoor festival with three days of top entertainment and the UK’s largest travelling fairground.
