  • THE LAST FIVE YEARS

    A hit both off-Broadway and internationally, The Last Five Years comes to Wales for the very first time. This ground-breaking production, directed by Angharad Lee, combines an emotionally powerful score with sign language and beautiful movement by award-winning choreographer Mark Smith, who is Deaf. This intimate musical charting New Yorkers Cathy and Jamie's passionate five-year relationship is an affecting tale of love found and lost.  By turns funny and poignant, with catchy tunes and a clever chronological twist, The Last Five Years will keep you riveted from beginning to end… or should that be from end to beginning?
    Every performance of The Last Five Years is accessible to D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audience members, with closed captioning and integrated sign language to be enjoyed by all.

    Live Nation have confirmed dates for the European leg of U2’s upcoming eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour.

    Following last year’s acclaimed stadium run with The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour will see U2 return indoors, to pick up where 2015’s groundbreaking iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour left off.

    The eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour follows the recent release of the band’s 14th studio album Songs of Experience. Just as Songs of Experience serves as a companion piece to 2014’s Songs of Innocence, the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour is a sequel to the 2015 tour which saw “U2 reinvent the arena show” (Rolling Stone) and was named #1 concert of 2015 by The New York Times.

    As with every U2 tour, this new arena production will explore the latest in cutting-edge technology. Staged in the round, the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour is a development of the unique and innovative staging of the 2015 tour, featuring multiple performance areas, a state-of-the-art sound system, plus an all new super high-res LED screen nine-times the resolution of the 2015 screen.

  • Performance Interpreting- Part of Southbank Centre’s London Literature Festival

    Date: 18th October 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


     BSL Interpreters: Esther Rose Thomas and Darren Townsend-Handscomb

    Hear the inside story of the rise of British rock from the Who’s Roger Daltrey on the publication day of his highly anticipated memoir, Thanks a Lot, Mr Kibblewhite: My Life.

    Daltrey’s memoir describes his journey from a childhood in suburban west London to becoming the vocalist in one of rock music’s era-defining bands.

    Hear in Daltrey’s own words as he separates myth from reality, reflects on his wild journey with the band through chart-topping hits, in-fighting, drugs, mayhem, trashed hotel rooms and the premature death of Keith Moon, and a life spanning a tumultuous time of change in Britain and America.

    Born during the air bombing of London in 1944, Daltrey left school at 15 and worked in a sheet metal factory while forming the band that would later become the Who.

    The Who shot to fame with the release of hit single My Generation in 1965. The band went on to release some of British rock’s most-loved albums, including Who’s Next, Tommy and Quadrophenia.

    Daltrey is in conversation with writer and presenter Will Hodgkinson, author of Guitar Man and Song Man and chief rock and pop critic for The Times.
