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.

Why volunteering matters for the creative industries

When people think about a charity, it is not often they think about arts institutions and theatres, many of which, are charities themselves.

As Wales’ national arts centre, our vision as a charity is to inspire our nation and impress the world by creating inspirational and life changing experiences that broaden horizons. In the coming years the Centre will seek to:

  •         Raise the aspiration of every young person in Wales.
  •         Be accessible to everyone.
  •         Be celebrated as one the leading performing arts centres in the world.
  •         Create innovative work that showcases Wales to the world.

Every penny spent at the Centre, helps us to deliver outstanding community engagement and creative learning work to enhance the lives and futures of many people.  

In order to continue developing opportunities, as well as presenting and producing great shows, we need a great deal of support.  

Our new volunteer scheme is a fantastic opportunity for us to benefit from additional help to deliver various projects and expand the reach of our work, while also giving something back.   Why volunteering matters for the creative industries

5 reasons to see Jane Eyre

The name Jane Eyre sounds familiar to a lot of us. Whether it’s harking back to our school or university days, many of us can recall scribbling notes in dusty books, highlighting and annotating this beloved, feisty feminist tale.

2017 is a big year for Jane Eyre, as it marks 170 years since the Charlotte Bronte novel and its trailblazing namesake, first made its debut. Published under a pseudonym, the story has come a long way since then. The stage production is currently touring around the country, and will grace the stage of the Wales Millennium Centre this week. 5 reasons to see Jane Eyre
