Wales Millennium Centre to host Giant Abseil to celebrate 15 years

Staff at Wales Millennium Centre and members of the general public are invited to abseil down The Centre’s iconic building in the heart of Cardiff Bay on Saturday 8th June 2019.

The Centre was opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2004, and this year celebrates its 15th birthday. To mark this memorable occasion, The Centre is playing host to a giant abseil and family day of activities for charity.

Those who have signed up and raised funds will either abseil down the slate wall, or the magnificent inscription at the front of the building. With each participant aiming to raise £200, The Centre hopes to reach a target of £15,000 to support their charitable work.

There will also be an array of family entertainment for all to enjoy. Families are invited to come down to enjoy the day: watch the abseil take place, enjoy a barbecue and music led by our youth programmes, enter a raffle, and take part in some free family games and activities.

Wales Millennium Centre as a registered charity works every day to broaden people’s horizons and offer every young person in Wales access to the arts. Working in partnership with organisations like Grassroots and Valleys Kids, The Centre seeks to help those who have tougher lives than most to experience the arts, and the pleasure and life enhancement that it brings.

The Centre creates learning experiences, practical skills, workshops and courses, and gives young people the opportunity to take part in world-class theatre productions.

Since The Centre was opened 15 years ago, over 70,000 people have participated in their learning and engagement programme. The three core areas of learning through creativity are Performance Platfform, Radio Platfform and Behind the Platfform.
