Spotlight on September

This month will be a September to remember at the Wales Millennium Centre with high-kicking, side-splitting, entertainment from some of the nation’s top performers.

Caroline Flack will be putting her best foot forward in the UK smash hit Crazy For You, along with Strictly’s Tom Chambers, while award-winning comedian Rhod Gilbert is certain to banish the September blues.

Finally, urban life will be elevated to new heights when beatboxers, artists, skateboarders and DJs perform at the top of a multi-storey car park as part of Break the Bay.

September is packed to the rafters – You’d be crazy to miss it!

5 reasons why Hairspray has inspired audiences

Over the last week, Wales Millennium Centre has been transported to Baltimore, 1962 for the highly anticipated production of Hairspray. Big hair, big voices and big personalities shine through the musical as it tells the tale of a young Tracy Turnblad and her dreams to dance her way on to ‘The Corny Collins Show’.  If you haven’t caught the show yet, there’s still time, but until then, here’s why we love it…

While famous for its vintage-inspired costumes, lively musical numbers and loveable, believable characters, the Tony Award winning production is often hailed as larger than life, but it isn’t just a work of frothy escapism. Underneath the big hair and sixties spirit, the magic comes from its place in pop culture, drawing an America on the brink of change.

Family fun in the Bay this summer

When school is out, and the weather is warm, the last thing you want to do is sit in front of the TV for hours.

So why not head to Cardiff Bay? It really is one of the best places to escape with the children this summer. Not only does the Bay transform into a sandy seaside for all, but the Centre offers up an array of brilliant family activities. We’ve put together a list of fantastic things to do for the whole family, from toddlers to teens.
