Anthem

A Wales Millennium Centre Production

20 – 30 July 2022

Weston Studio

All performances from 30 March – 10 April have been postponed until 20 – 30 July 2022.

Original ticket holders have been contacted directly by our Ticket Office with further information. To check the dates of your new tickets, simply log in to your account.

Four regions. Four songs. One prize. With the land of song judging from their sofas, who will come out on top?

Join us in the studio for the live final of Anthem, the nation’s biggest TV singing competition. There will be wind machines. There will be key changes. There will be plenty of arguments on Twitter.

Watch the drama and hilarity unfold – both on and off air – as the finalists from every corner of Wales get ready to compete to bring the title home. Are they longing for fame? Acceptance? Or just another trophy for Mam’s dresser?

This new Welsh language musical comedy will leave a smile on your face long after the last note has been sung.
