Graduation 2018

It’s Graduation Day!

Today we celebrate the achievements of all our talented graduating students at St Davids Hall, Cardiff, and wish them good luck as they take the next step in their chosen careers. We hope they’ll keep in touch and we look forward to hearing their news.

Congratulations, everyone!

Graduation is also an opportunity for the College to honour inspirational figures in national and international creative life.


Our Honorary Fellows have each made significant individual contributions to the College and within the arts and cultural industries in the UK or internationally.
