About St Davids Cathedral Festival
The St Davids Cathedral Festival has been bringing music to the heart of West Wales for over 40 years
In 2022, our 44th festival will bring a feast of classical and contemporary music to the most beautiful city in Wales. The festival takes place during the Summer half-term from 27th May to 5th June, and includes our Royal Patron, Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday. The Cathedral becomes a hive of musical activity under the artistic direction of Simon Pearce.
The perfect acoustic and stunning architecture of the Nave with its unique sixteenth century oak ceiling provide a concert venue unrivalled in Wales. There are both early- and late-evening concerts featuring soloists, chamber music ensembles, choral work, jazz and orchestral groups, and we have a series of afternoon recitals featuring the emerging stars of the future.
Open from May to June.
St Davids Cathedral Festival is fully accessible. Please see Festival FAQs – St Davids Cathedral Festival
