Thousands of people turned out in Cardiff Bay last night for the 10th birthday celebrations of the Wales Millennium Centre.
To mark the occasion, a large outdoor performance was put on.
Over 700 people from all over the country will gather outside Wales' Millennium Centre this evening to perform in the largest outdoor production to take place in Wales this year.
The Ar Waith Ar Daith production will be the highlight of the Millennium Centre's 10th birthday celebrations.
Preparations for the outdoor spectacular have been taking place over the last eight months.
Over the past six months, the creative team have been gathering gifts from across Wales – paying tribute to the riches of the seas around North Wales, the mineral wealth of South Wales, and capturing stories and inspiration from across the land.
Sea rowers from Porthmadog have also completed a 230 mile journey to Cardiff Bay ahead of their appearance in tonight's celebratory performance.
They carried with them an engraved slate plaque – a gift to Wales Millennium Centre – from Llechwedd Slate Caverns.
Ar Waith Ar Daith far exceeds anything, by way of scale, that we have ever commissioned here at Wales Millennium the Centre. It has been fantastic to work with outdoor arts experts, Walk the Plank throughout the year-long planning and creation process. Ar Waith Ar Daith has embraced this fully, working closely with Welsh artists and communities and expertly weaving this creativity and inspiration into the finale performance.
Proceeds from Reach Out - a 30-track, download-only album - will be donated to charity Refugee Action.Read the full story ›

Plans have been unveiled to revive the South Wales Dragon Studios. The 'Valleywood' studios has had a trouble history since its development.Read the full story ›
Film studios in South Wales, dubbed 'Valleywood', could be taken over by an American company.
Dragon Studios have seen some productions but have been in the hands of administrators since 2008. Now Fox Television 21 is being helped to secure the lease of the facility.
The creative industries are one of our fastest growing priority sectors. The Welsh Government is committed to ensuring further growth by supporting this venture at Dragon Studios and others like Pinewood Studio Wales and the establishment of the Bad Wolf production company, operating between South Wales and LA.
All this will bring more international TV drama productions to Wales, leading to increased inward investment and production spend, strengthening of the supply chain, and increasing the skills base of local talent working within the creative industries to create wider economic benefits for the whole of Wales.
