Swansea Festival of Music and the Arts 2012
Due to a year-long programme of essential maintenance and refurbishment of the Brangwyn Hall, the venue for the Festival’s music events, Swansea Festival of Music and the Arts will be suspended for 2013.
The 2014 Festival, October 4th-18th, will be a double celebration. Special events marking the centenary of Dylan Thomas are included as major contributions to the year-long Dylan Thomas Festival recently announced by the Welsh Government and the opening concert by the Philharmonia Orchestra will mark the re-opening of the Brangwyn Hall. The programme will include Welsh National Opera, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Russian State Philharmonic Orchestra plus a range of arts at venues across the City.
