The Wales Millennium Centre hosts everything from opera and art exhibitions, to ballet and theatre performances. In 1997, the centre received a National Lottery grant from the Arts Council of Wales allowing construction to begin. Further funding was received in order to include a lyric theatre with state of the art acoustics and audience facilities, office rehearsal space and performance facilities.
Apart from entertaining performances, the Millennium Centre provides educational and outreach programs in order to engage the community. These include workshops, performance opportunities and Learning Weeks. The National Lottery has funded various projects including Project Estyn which worked to expand the provision of learning and participation outreach activities throughout Wales.
The design of the building and the facilities it offers has made the Wales Millennium Centre one of the world’s most iconic arts and cultural destinations.
