Familia Del Noche Present

The Great Insect Games!

Supported by Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Council Summer of Smiles, Theatr Clwyd, Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru, Aberystwyth Arts Centre and Articulture

Flex your muscles and practise your lunges, it's time for the Great Insect Games!

Hosted by our gym junkie grasshoppers, you can take part in the hare-brained events. Who will win at synchronised swimming, the spider or the slug?! And how will the butterfly fare at weightlifting?! How does a snail wear boxing gloves?

Join us for the gloriously bug infested opening ceremony and sing along to the Insect National Anthem at this fun packed show for all the family.

Created by Familia De La Noche with new music from HMS Morris and produced in association with WMC, Cardiff Council Summer of Smiles, Theatr Clwyd, National Eisteddfod, Aberystwyth Arts Centre and Articulture.

Where is it taking place?

This is an outdoor show taking place at the amphitheatre behind Wales Millennium Centre (WMC). If you are outside the front of WMC, follow the path around the left-hand side of the building, go up the steps and cross the road at the pelican crossing at the rear of WMC.

On the opposite side of the road you will see the entrance to the multi-story Car Park Q-Park; the performance site is just to the left outside the Red Dragon Centre. There will be staff on site to check your tickets and please feel free to bring a blanket to sit on.
