There’s a lot of magic happening at the end of 2021
There is plenty of fun to be had this Autumn/Winter season and we’ve provided you with all the deets!
From Potter exclusives, laser light festivals, musicals and theatre, and a little comedy thrown into the mix, Cardiff is in for a very mystical end to the year.
First up is the Harry Potter trolley tour; the 9 ¾ platform trolley will be in Cardiff Central train station for all you Potter heads to teleport your way to the Muggle world. The trolley is on tour to celebrate the two-decade anniversary of the first Harry Potter film, The Philosopher’s Stone.
The trolley will be at Cardiff’s central train station from Tuesday 26 October 2021 to Thursday 28 October 2021.
Eye Cymru is a ‘pure cosmic light sorcery,’ meaning a laser light spectacular hosted by Chris Levine and fellow multi-million selling award-winning performers.
The laser and sound spectacle will be at Cardiff Castle from the 14 October 2021 till the 31 October 2021.
Festival of the Dead
Festival of the Dead return with their ‘The Rock Orchestra by Candlelight’ event on the 18 September 2021 at the Depot.
The talent show has a second event lined up called, ‘Halloween Returns,’ a spooktacular ceremony taking place on the 23 October 2021 at VSA Warehouse. The event is described as a ‘unique blend of circus, carnival and chaos.’
The dark arts shows will have live circus artists performing talented moves that will leave you shuddering, and a DJ and live band playing everything from rock, indie, bass, DNB, house and industrial techno music.
