Evolution, the epic drone light show coming to Cardiff this Good Friday, has announced City Hospice as their official charity partner in Cardiff.

The partnership will raise much-needed funds to support the Cardiff-based charity, with volunteers and nurses dedicated to the hospice also benefitting from free tickets to the must-see show.

Volunteers will raise money at the event offering glow-in-the-dark merchandise and face glitter to attendees on the night. With multiple donation points also set up for attendees to donate throughout the night. All proceeds will support City Hospice.

What to expect

The event is brought to Cardiff by Celestial (creators of drone light shows for brands across the globe), and Yuup (the local experiences company).

Following a hugely successful pilot in Bristol and the West Midlands during December, including sell out shows, Evolution is set to tour the UK. It kicks off first here in Cardiff on Friday 29th March for one night only, taking place at Sophia Gardens, home of Glamorgan County Cricket.

Evolution, the drone light show, presents the very latest in creative entertainment with a spellbinding celebration of the living world. Audiences will be immersed in an epic-scale event using hundreds of drones in the night sky, fusing cutting-edge technology and creativity to spark the imagination and stir the soul.

The narrated story starts with the Big Bang, the explosive birth of the universe, before journeying into the remarkable origins of conscious life on Earth.
