Our Venues

In 2021, the festival is going on tour to two beautiful venues.

Insole Court
Nestled in the leafy Cardiff suburb of Llandaff, Insole Court is a Grade II* listed mansion house with a rich history.

Saved by the community, the 160-year-old house and outbuildings have undergone extensive refurbishments with many parts now open to visitors.

Tredegar House

A place shaped by the local community, Tredegar House and its surrounding gardens and parkland stand proudly at the heart of Newport’s heritage, and is now managed by the National Trust.

Tredegar House is one of the architectural wonders of Wales and one of the most significant late 17th-century houses in the whole of the British Isles. For more than 500 years the house was home to one of the greatest welsh families, the Morgans, later Lords Tredegar.

Performances will take place in the Stable Courtyard.
