What's On in Cardiff

We’ve created this guide to inform you of all the great events coming up over the next few months and with winter well and truly on its way, there are lots of exciting Christmas events to look forward to! Events coming up in the next few months..  

The Doctor Who Experience

Throughout the year at Cardiff Bay

Go on an interactive journey through time and space and discover the history behind the infamous Doctor. A must see for any Doctor Who fans as you can experience first-hand the various worlds and Doctors that have appeared in the show and see real costumes.  

Welsh National Opera: Hansel and Gretel

21st February – 27th February, Wales Millenium Centre

If you’re expecting a children’s fairytale, this is not the show for you. Dark and complex, this opera examines some of the slightly less pleasant themes underneath this well-known story – hunger, gluttony and cannibalism, but all performed in a rich, and at times comic, style that will cast a spell over audiences.   

Maurice Marinot: A Passion for Glass

20th December – 7th June 2015, National Museum Cardiff

Maurice Marinot was one of the first artists to use glass as a studio art form. His glass work is experimental, using brightly coloured enamels to creating striking pieces of work. This exhibition brings together work from a number of collections and is the first time the work has been displayed together since the 1960s.   

St David’s Day Celebrations and Parade

1st March, throughout the city

Come and help the Welsh celebrate their national day on the 1st March. Help wave Welsh flags or wear a daffodil as you dance through the streets with the rest of the carnival. Expect music, folk dancing, dragons and much more!
