It is with great regret that we have closed Wales Millennium Centre until further notice, following the UK Government advice given on Monday 16 March 2020.
We hope you will agree that it is the right decision to put the safety of our staff, artists, volunteers and audiences first. This is a sad and uncertain time for all of us.
The implications of this situation will be hard to manage and long-lasting. Our role is to be a home for the performing arts for our nation and we will be doing everything we can to support our staff and volunteers, artists and freelancers through this difficult situation.
We are currently working on a way to support the talented and hardworking individuals who provide us with the joy that the performing arts bring. We want to be ready to bring back the uplifting performances and life-enhancing learning opportunities so many people value, as soon as is possible.
However, we are a charity. While we are grateful for the government funding we receive, more than 85% of our revenues come from ticket sales. So times ahead will be tough.
We use all our profits to provide jobs for artists, opportunities for young people to learn about and work in the performing arts, and for communities to access, participate in, and celebrate the arts.
We are currently contacting all ticket holders with details of shows that have been postponed or cancelled to make refunds as required. Please bear with us whilst we work through this process.
The best sources of up-to-date information will now be our website and social media channels, which will be updated as and when further information emerges.
We wish the best to everyone in our community. Please stay safe and we will look forward to welcoming you back to Wales Millennium Centre in the near future.
Managing Director, Wales Millennium Centre
