So much more than a theatre.
Wales Millennium Centre opened in 2004 and has already established its reputation as one of the world`s iconic arts and cultural destinations. The vision of the Centre is to be an internationally significant cultural landmark and centre for the performing arts, renowned for inspiration, excellence and leadership.
The Centre is one of the most unique and lively performing arts centres in Europe. Look beyond the amazing exterior, as featured in Torchwood and Dr Who, and you will come across a bustling atmosphere that makes our visitors want to return time and time again. It's so much more than a theatre though.
Visitors can enjoy blockbuster West End musicals, opera, ballet and contemporary dance, hip hop and stand up comedy, art exhibitions, workshops, training days, free daily foyer performances, guided tours, bars and restaurants….there really is something for everyone. There are also regular behind-the-scenes backstage tours, as well as more specialist technical and architectural tours.
Whether it's casual or pre-show dining, dropping in to share a drink with friends or buying gifts, Wales Millennium Centre has a wide range of exciting choices. You can also enjoy pre-performance and interval drinks in our Awen, Stones and Horizons bars situated behind the world-famous inscription.
