Love Late Nights at the Three Choirs Festival

The perfect way to unwind at the end of a long day, Late Night concerts at the Three Choirs Festival let you experience beautiful music in a relaxed and informal setting and enjoy a drink from the bar while you listen.

The Three Choirs Festival runs in Hereford from 23 – 30 July and is a week packed with world-class music in beautiful surroundings. With over 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 our café and bar – you can even enjoy a free performance on our bandstand while you eat!

The festival has been around for over 300 years for a reason, so why not try something new and pay us a visit this year?

Standby Tickets for Under 30s

Tickets will be available for £5 from 45 minutes before the start of the performance. You may be asked to show proof of age when buying your tickets.
