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.

We are back in Sophia Gardens 23 June – 30 July 2022 with another exciting programme of theatre for all the family. 

Our full programme will be announced soon, with productions including Blackadder Goes Forth directed by Simon H West, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night directed by David Mercatali, and Little Shop of Horrors with the creative team of Rich Tunley and Rob Thorne Jr. 

Also heading to the stage is the family production of Disney’s High School Musical produced by Go Theatre, and Everyman Youth Theatre’s production of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors. 

Many of our cast and crew from our planned 2020 festival will be returning to these productions, but keep an eye out on our social media pages and website for information soon about casting and volunteering opportunities. 

Tickets will be released for the 2022 festival in March next year.
