Quarry After Dark
We are excited to announce the launch of CAT’s new evening events programme
Quarry After Dark
This diverse programme of events will boast live music, talks, late night tours, festivals, film screenings, performances and exhibitions.
Quarry After Dark allows guests to experience CAT after the Visitor Centre has closed and our organic gardens, rammed-earth theatre and the spectacular views into the Snowdonia National Park create the perfect backdrop to a memorable evening.
The CAT Café and Donnelly’s Bar will be offering delicious vegetarian meals and a selection of organic alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks during many of the events so why not book a room in our on-site accommodation and celebrate the evening in style!
Upcoming events will be featured in more detail here and links to our full programme of day and night time events can be found on our CAT calendar and through our Facebook page so please keep an eye out and you won’t miss a thing.
