Performance and summer schools

Our state-of-the-art concert hall, theatres, rehearsal studios and practice rooms are popular hires for performance events and competitions. Let us host you.

Your event at RWCMD

Our state-of-the-art concert hall and theatres are hired for music competitions, orchestral concerts, opera recitals, drama performances and musical theatre shows, produced by companies such as BBC Young Musician, BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, Only Boys Aloud, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Kinetic. Each year, we also host summer schools such as The Aloud Charity and the National UK Jazz Summer School.

Dora Stoutzker Hall

Our world-class Dora Stoutzker Hall (400-seats), with its excellent acoustics, is the only purpose-built chamber recital hall in Wales. Lined with golden timber and an upper balcony, the hall wraps the audience around the performers, creating a shared intimate experience for musicians and audiences alike

Richard Burton Theatre

The Richard Burton Theatre (180 seats) is named after one of Wales’ greatest actors. Its deep violet interior melts away to leave the audience focussed on the performance. Boasting state-of-the-art facilities including a fly tower, its contemporary horse-shoe design ensures the closest possible relationship between audience and performers.

Bute Theatre

These venues sit alongside the black box Bute Theatre (160 seated/ 300 standing) and a suite of light-filled rehearsal studios and practice rooms with Steinway pianos.


I was so impressed with your new building, and the concert hall is wonderful. It really is the finest modern hall that I have ever seen.

The Dora Stoutzker Hall was a truly fantastic venue for the competition and the feedback we’ve received from all of the competitors, their teachers, their parents and our juries reflect this.
