Events for Everyone at Three Choirs Festival

The Three Choirs Festival runs in Hereford from 23 – 30 July and is a week packed with wonderful music in beautiful surroundings. With other 70 events from talks, theatre, walks, concerts and more… There is something for everyone.

Events take place every day and evening during festival week, and the Festival Village is open throughout as the perfect place to relax just outside the cathedral. Take advantage of the café and bar – you can even enjoy a free performance on the bandstand.

For Families

The Three Choirs Festival believes that music is for everyone, and families and children are welcome at concerts, free open rehearsals in the Cathedral and in the Festival Village. There are also specific family events throughout the week so that all ages can discover the magic of music for themselves.
