About Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama

The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama is the National Conservatoire of Wales, providing specialist practical and performance-based training that enables students to enter and influence the music, theatre and related professions. During the vacations, it is a superb world-class conference and meeting venue.

Our £22m suite of venues includes the magnificent Dora Stoutzker Concert Hall (200 - 350 seats), the intimate Richard Burton Theatre (182 seats), a large and flexible exhibition gallery accommodating up to 50 trade stands and a stunning three-storey high glass atrium and open-air terrace overlooking the Grade 1 listed Bute Park set in the grounds of Cardiff Castle.
Our conference venues include up to 10 break-out rooms with audio-visual facilities including eight state-of-the-art large studios. Two further rooms are housed within our historic Anthony Hopkins Centre (the original Cardiff Castle stables building) which also has a stunning open-air courtyard. A very impressive tree-lined avenue provides the entrance for delegates and guests to the Anthony Hopkins Centre with Cardiff Castle in view.

Our professional in-house technical team can provide specialist audio-visual, lighting, sound, film and audio recording services.

Our beautiful park location within a short walk from the centre of the capital city of Cardiff creates a unique offering for conference delegates and guests. As well as magnificent shopping centres, Victorian arcades, historic theatres, contemporary cinemas, museums and a dramatic waterfront, Cardiff hosts the full range of overnight accommodation options – from luxury hotels to independently-run boutique guest houses to budget providers.
