Outdoors arts in Wales is vibrant and growing.


From radical theatre and world class circus, to international sell-out light and sound shows and Europe’s largest touring festival, outdoor arts in Wales can be found on your street, in your marketplace, city centre, national park, mountains and beaches.

On the one hand it embraces the intimacy of a chance encounter with the small but brilliant theatre company Kitsch n Sync on a Bangor Street corner at Pontio’s bi-annual Circus Feast; on the other, the nationwide ‘Ar Waith Ar Daith’ in Cardiff Bay, with its magnificent mass participation to celebrate ten years of the Wales Millennium Centre.

Outdoor Arts in Wales encompasses a wealth of Welsh talent from theatre, traditional and contemporary dance, music and puppetry, to comedy, pyrotechnics, circus, and visual and digital art.

Collaborating with tourist boards, town centres, land managers and heritage organisations, it offers a unique and powerful opportunity for new creative adventures, showcasing and celebrating the wonders of Wales.
