About the Festival
Each year, the award-winning Cardiff Open Air Theatre Festival attracts over 14,000 visitors a year across six weeks in the centre of Cardiff. Everyman Theatre is proud to stage productions that cater to a wide demographic of all ages.
We stage innovative interpretations of our productions that both challenge and entertain our audiences. We stage a Shakespeare production, musical, family show suitable for young children, and a light entertainment / comedy production each year.
In 2021, things will look a little different. Following a pause in 2020 due to Coronavirus restrictions, this year we are going on tour!
Join us this year at Insole Court in Llandaff, Cardiff and Tredegar House, in Newport. Our productions this year are Richard III by William Shakespeare, and The Railway Children by E Nesbit, adapted for the stage by Mike Kenny. Everyman Youth Theatre are also back with Henry V, and Everyman Theatre are also performing The Rose and Crown by JB Priestley.
We are hopeful that this year’s festival will go ahead, following the latest Welsh Government regulations, with tickets on sale Friday 2 April. Limited tickets are available, so make sure to book yours soon!
We will be sharing more news on how were are staging productions and keeping our cast, crew, and audiences safe soon.
