National Lottery #ThanksToYou

*** Exclusive access to a technical rehearsal ***

Join Hijinx Odyssey as they say ‘Thank You’ to the public who buy lottery tickets. This is an exclusive offer to attend the technical rehearsal of their brand new Christmas production Hansel, Gedeon and the Grimms’ Wood on Tuesday 4 December at 7pm in the Weston Studio of the Wales Millennium Centre. We have 30 FREE places up for grabs!

Your weekly purchase of a lottery ticket helps to raise £30 million a week for Good Causes, of which Hijinx, through the Arts Council of Wales, is funded. We are taking part in the national #thankstoyou campaign, and you, as a player of the lottery, can join us to celebrate!

To book your place to attend our technical rehearsal FOR FREE, please email by close of play on the 28 November and bring your national lottery ticket (Lotto, Euromillions, Thunderball and HotPicks) or National Lottery Scratchcard with you on the day. Proof of ticket can be paper or digital.

Tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.


Hijinx Odyssey members welcome The Players to an ‘Open Technical Rehearsal’ of Hansel, Gedeon and the Grimms’ Wood.

A technical rehearsal is the first chance for the actors to be onstage with lighting. Whilst we aim for this to be an uninterrupted run of the performance, in reality, it will involve some stopping and starting to make sure the technical crew have everything in place to best support the artists. It also means the actors may not be in full costume, and we might have some of the props missing. However, this is a brilliant opportunity you to see how the show develops before it is open to the paying public.
