Awards

Our tenth anniversary hasn’t been the only thing we’ve had to celebrate over the last few months – along with remaining Wales’ No.1 visitor attraction, welcoming over 1.5 million visitors through the doors every year, we’ve also won an impressive number of prestigious awards, from Wales’ National Treasure to Loo of the Year.

Most recently, the Centre won The Queen’s Award for Enterprise - the UK’s highest accolade for business success - in the field of Sustainable Development. The Queen’s Award recognises our commitment to balancing the social, economic and environmental aspects of the business so as to enable a sustainable approach in the delivery of culture in Wales, driving profit earned back into the charity arm of the business for Creative Learning and Community Engagement projects.

The accolade also acknowledges the Centre’s ambitions to inspire the nation - providing opportunities for all to engage with culture and the arts - and to excel in every area, from offering the highest levels of customer service to maintaining the iconic building itself.

The Centre’s exemplary standards of customer service were also recognised through the UK Theatre Awards in October 2014 when the Centre scooped the award for Most Welcoming Theatre, as voted by the public. This is the second time the Centre has won the award, testament to the warm Welsh welcome we make it our priority to offer every visitor to the Centre, from our local community to visiting companies and international guests.

Our desire to ensure every aspect of the visitor experience at the Centre is world class extends right through to our maintenance of the Centre and our cleaning team have been recognised as one of the best in the country, winning four awards at the 2014 Loo of the Year Awards: Platinum National Award Category Winner, Best Loo in the Entertainment Sector in the UK, Cleaning Attendants of the Year and national Category Winner.

In November 2014, Wales Millennium Centre was also named Wales’ National Treasure after the public took to the polls to vote for their most loved lottery funded project.
