Festival Hub

The heart of the festival is in the Festival Hub, located in Hereford Cathedral School. A perfect place to meet up with old friends over a drink (and make a few new ones!), you'll find the Old Deanery bar and garden, serving a selection of fine wines, cask ales and local ciders, as well as the dining room where we serve our pre-concert meals. Relax with the daily newspapers in the Quiet Room, or wander round the Sports Hall art exhibition, where there will be over 30 local artists exhibiting a wide range of styles. You can be sure of a warm welcome from our Friends of Hereford Three Choirs Festival in the Sports Hall Cafe and the Zimmerman Cafe, serving a range of hot and cold drinks, cakes, breakfasts, lunches and suppers.
