Following the latest government advice about Coronavirus, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama is cancelling all public performances from today, 17 March 2020, until further notice.

We will update this position as and when we get further guidance from UK Government.

The safety and well-being of our students, staff and audiences is of the highest importance. We apologise for the disruption and thank you for your support during this period of great uncertainty.

Please be aware that from September 2020 we will be operating a limited Box Office service by telephone so opening hours may vary. If you are unable to get through by telephone please email

Concessions apply to over 60s, students, ex-RWCMD students, under 16s and customers with a disability (you may be asked to provide ID upon purchase and/or collection). This may vary depending on performance. For the comfort of all patrons, we strongly advise that RWCMD performances are not suitable for children under 2 years (unless otherwise stated).
