From the 1830s into the 1880s, successive Governments funded the establishment of art schools throughout the UK and steered their subsequent development.

In 1865, Cardiff Council elected to join with the national scheme and set up an art school.

Cardiff’s Art School began its classes in a large room off St Mary’s Street that already contained the Council’s library and burgeoning museum collection. Just over a hundred years later, the University, as we now know it, began to take shape.

To book online:

Places are free of charge on a first come, first serve basis and are open to the General Public. Cardiff Metropolitan University operates a 24 hour parking system – please pay and display 50p on the evening of the lecture.
