Matilda The Musical has arrived in Wales for the first time.

Our multi-award winning musical is now playing at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff, until 12 January 2019. 

The character has a special link to Cardiff, as its creator Roald Dahl was born there, in the Llandaff district of the city, in 1916.
