We have something for everyone at Cardiff Open Air Theatre Festival! Take a look below at what’s on offer this year.

We are able to stage this year’s Festival thanks to your ongoing support and thanks to funding by the Third Sector Resilience Fund for Wales Phase 2 Scheme, managed and administered by WCVA on behalf of the Welsh Government.

This year we are on tour to two unique venues, so you will need to bring your own chairs to view the performance.

You can either book on-line by clicking on the link or call our telephone box office at Ticketsource on 0333 666 3366.

Need to exchange tickets? Ticketsource are kind enough to handle our exchanges too. Once a purchase for the new performance is booked, Ticketsource will refund you for your original ticket price.
