Disney’s THE LION KING returns to Wales Millennium Centre in Summer 2020

The Walt Disney Company UK and Ireland and Wales Millennium Centre have today announced that Disney’s The Lion King will return to the Centre’s Donald Gordon Theatre in summer 2020. ­­­

The iconic musical will come to Cardiff for seven weeks from 9 July to 29 August 2020. Tickets go on sale in September 2019 and patrons can sign up for priority access to tickets at either www.thelionking.co.uk or www.wmc.org.uk/thelionking from today (Monday 29 July 2019).

Over 130,000 people experienced the production across a 10-week, record-breaking season when it last visited the Centre in 2014, generating an estimated £5 million for the local economy.

Graeme Farrow, Artistic & Creative Director at Wales Millennium Centre, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming this incredible musical back to Wales Millennium Centre next summer. It’s a timeless production which captures the imagination of audiences – both young and old.”

This year, The Lion King celebrates an incredible 20 years in the West End. The musical had its premiere in London on 19 October 1999 at the Lyceum Theatre, which remains its home in London.
