New Music Mystery Tour

Sunday 19 May, 5.45pm to 10.30pm

To be revealed

Composer Piece Duration Listen

Take a journey into the unknown with the Festival’s first ever Mystery Tour, for a performance at an atmospheric, intimate secret venue.

We deliberately aren’t giving too much away. But we’ll meet outside Cardiff Museum for a 30 minute coach journey to our destination in the company of a renowned composer or composers, who will give a guide to their music. Then you’ll hear approximately 100 minutes of their music.

This one-off special event to mark the Vale of Glamorgan Festival’s 50th birthday is strictly limited capacity. It’s set to be one of the most exciting ways to hear new music in 2019.

You can buy a picnic in advance or bring your own. There will also be a cash bar.
