The Walt Disney Company UK and Ireland and Wales Millennium Centre have today [Monday July 29] announced that Disney’s The Lion King will return to the Centre’s Donald Gordon Theatre in summer 2020. ­­­

The musical will come to Cardiff for seven weeks from 9 July to 29 August 2020. Tickets go on sale in September 2019 and you can sign up for priority access to tickets at either or from today.

The UK cities of The Lion King tour are exclusively supported by VeryMe Rewards from Vodafone UK. Vodafone customers will be able to access the pre-sale tickets through the My Vodafone app 24 hours before they become available elsewhere, on Thursday 5 September 2019.

Over 130,000 people experienced the production across a 10-week, record-breaking season when it last visited the Centre in 2014, generating an estimated £5 million for the local economy.

Graeme Farrow, Artistic & Creative Director at Wales Millennium Centre, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming this incredible musical back to Wales Millennium Centre next summer. It’s a timeless production which captures the imagination of audiences – both young and old.”

This year, The Lion King celebrates 20 years in the West End. The musical had its premiere in London on 19 October 1999 at the Lyceum Theatre, which remains its home in London.

The Lion King will also be presented as a dedicated ‘relaxed performance’ at the Centre on 20 August 2020 at 1.30pm. Relaxed performances are adapted to be accessible to a wide range of audiences such as those with autism, learning difficulties or other sensory and communication needs, with extra trained staff on hand and dedicated quiet areas inside the theatre should anyone need to leave their seat.
