The Welsh College of Music and Drama is the national conservatoire for Wales. It was founded in 1949 when it was housed in Cardiff Castle and, in 1974, moved to its purpose-built premises in the Castle Grounds, just a few hundred yards from the city centre. With over 300 performances a year, there is a wide range of performance opportunities available in one of the WCMD's six venues, or further afield at venues in Wales, the United Kingdom and beyond.
