Narberth’s A Cappella Voice Festival (NAVF) is an uplifting biennial celebration of voice. It is a wonderful opportunity for people to come together to share in a joyful weekend of singing and to sample a diverse line up of performances, workshops and enjoy a sumptuous singing feast. The 11th NAVF was in February 2020, and Span Arts is planning the next for 2022.

‘Exceeded all expectations’

– Western Telegraph

Narberth’s A Cappella Voice Festival was set up in with the aim to bring the appeal of a cappella to as wide an audience as possible with fun and friendly performances, workshops for all abilities and events by highly acclaimed and popular performers.

The festival is unique as it pushes the boundaries of traditional a cappella singing and allows the audience to experience different cultures and singing styles, featuring traditional and non-traditional a cappella artists from around the world.

Previous acts have included: Durga Ramakrishnan, Ye Vagabonds, the South African Zulu Male Choir, The Sons of Pitches, Cordydd, Camilo Menjura, Seimon Morris, Michael Deason-Barrow, Black Voices, Enkelit, The Swingle Singers, Caryl Parry Jones, Juice & Majiker, The Boxettes, The London Bulgarian Choir, The Perunika Trio, and Lina Leon.

Alongside the professional concerts, we also offer lots of opportunities for the community to get involved with a varied programme of workshops. In 2016, we introduced a new intergenerational project, called Côr Pawb (Everybody’s Choir). This fabulous singing project brought 170 people, aged 7-97, from local choirs and schools together for an evening concert to launch the festival. In 2020, Côr Pawb closed the festival with a debut performance of an original song composed for the festival.


We have lots of opportunities for volunteers to help at Span Arts events and projects. For further information please read here.
