The Welsh Proms Cymru consists of a week long series of classical music place which takes place annually at St David's Hall, Cardiff in July each year.

The Proms' Artistic Director is Owain Arwel Hughes CBE, who founded the Proms in 1986 and has remained in the post each year since.[1]

The first Welsh Proms season was held in 1986 and consisted purely of orchestral evening concerts. In recent years the season has been expanded to include additional, smaller scale "fringe" events, including a Family Prom, Tiddly Prom, Organ Prom and Jazz Prom.
