This month, we're kicking off with our joyous Summer of Music season. We all miss live music, so we're bringing you some amazing experiences to enjoy straight from your cinema seat! On sale now is documentary Don't Go Gentle: A Film About IDLES (Newport-Bristol band), and In The Heights, a vibrant and lively musical based in the streets of New York.
Other films include Another Round, about middle-aged friends who embark on an experiment: to see whether staying constantly tipsy will bring happiness, and The Welshman, a documentary about Owain Williams and the community of Capel Celyn, with a live Q&A from director Lindsay Walker.
We're delighted to announce that National Dance Company Wales will be bringing some dynamic, family-friendly open air performances later this August, so snap up your tickets quick! Theatr Clwyd presents a digital run of For The Grace of You Go I, an acclaimed dark comedy by Alan Harris.
Come and see new works from artist Holly Davey, including a script reading and 'Meet the Artist' event. Available on the Chapter Player is Artes Mundi's At the Table series, conversations with the Artes Mundi 9 prize winners.
