The Welsh Proms Cymru is Wales' national classical music festival. The series consists of a week long series of classical music place which takes place annually at the national concert hall of Wales, 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.

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.

The 33rd season of Welsh Proms will take place from 21 to 28 July 2018, full information on which will be made available following the 2018 launch on Wednesday 18 April.
