To celebrate our tenth anniversary, the Centre thanked the people of Wales for their support over the last decade by offering an exclusive and a unique opportunity to attend a free performance of Disney’s The Lion King.
The people of Wales have truly taken the Centre to their hearts, and this was a unique opportunity to show our gratitude and possibly welcome for the very first time some people who, for whatever reason, may never have experienced the magic of Wales Millennium Centre and its Donald Gordon Theatre.
The Centre invited the residents of Wales to apply for a ballot for the exclusive free ticket offer. Made possible by the kind support of Lloyds Bank, the Centre gave away a full house of free tickets (over 1,700) for the 26th November performance - - ten years to the day since we first opened our doors to the world.
Allan Griffiths, Director, SME Banking at Lloyds Bank commented “As a principal sponsor of Wales Millennium Centre’s 10th Anniversary year, Lloyds Bank are proud to support such a great project, enabling thousands of people across Wales to appreciate the arts for free.”
Mathew Milsom, Wales Millennium Centre’s Managing Director, added “Since opening 10 years ago the people of Wales have shown us so much support and loyalty. We as a Centre are indebted to the millions of people who have booked tickets for shows, contributing to our success as a business. Their continued support has enabled us to realise our ambition of bringing the best of the world to Wales. We are also extremely appreciative of all the teachers, parents and supporters, including Lloyds Bank, who have enabled over 200,000 young people, many from disadvantaged communities, to have life enhancing arts experiences at the Centre.”
If you would like to see Disney’s The Lion King, it runs until 11 January 2015. For tickets and further information visit our main site here.
