Wales Millennium Centre

Wales Millennium Centre is Wales’ national home for the performing arts in Cardiff Bay and this year will be celebrating their 15th birthday.

One of the UK’s top cultural attractions and home to eight resident partners, this Welsh landmark stages musicals, opera, ballet, circus and contemporary dance alongside the UK’s largest programme of free performances.

The Wales Millennium Centre was created as a stage for Wales, to reflect the spirit of a nation, and become a home for the performing arts.

What's On

The design reflects both the natural and industrial landscape of Wales, taking inspiration from the sea-cliffs and steel industry of South Wales and the jagged slate mines found in the north.  There is also a nod to the maritime history of Tiger Bay, reflected by the hull-shaped copper-coloured roof that gave rise to the building being known locally as the armadillo.

After years in the planning, it took just two-and-a-half years to complete and was opened by the Queen in 2004 using an ornate steel key that travelled across five continents on a journey of goodwill before unlocking the front door.
