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.
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.
… or will it be a squeal as they go over the edge?
Our daredevil duo will be scaling the timbers, beams and joists above the stage of the Wales Millennium Centre and heading to the roof on Saturday 8th June 2019, before abseiling down the iconic inscription ‘Creu Gwir Fel Gwydr O Ffwrnais Awen - In These Stones Horizons Sing’.
The unforgettable experience will be undertaken by Hayley Colley, Group Revenue Manager and Martin Eagle, Sales Manager from Future Inn Cardiff. As the principle hotel partner, since The Centre has opened, it was only right that our team supported them in their 15th Anniversary Abseil Fundraiser.
You can support Hayley and Martin taking on their once in a lifetime decline and the Wales Millennium Centre by making a donation, or by cheering them on. A family fun day is planned so even those not taking on the descent can get involved too. The Centre will use the money raised through fundraising to offer every young person in Wales access to the arts by creating digital learning, practical skills workshops and courses, partnering with youth-led festivals and allowing them to take part in world-class theatre productions.
Wish them luck, going over the edge!
