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 ensure the charity can continue to care for patients and their families. Volunteers and nurses dedicated to the charity will also be offered free tickets to the must-see show.

During the event, City Hospice volunteers will be raising money offering glow-in-the-dark merchandise and face glitter. With multiple donation points also set up for attendees to donate throughout the night.

So, what can audiences expect from Evolution?

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.

Mac Smith, Fundraising and Events Manager at City Hospice comments:

“We’re ecstatic to be the official charity for Evolution Cardiff. Fundraising is a vital part of ensuring we can continue to provide our services to those who need us. As part of this, we’re actively involved in partnering with local events and businesses. Sharing this epic scale event with our team is an added bonus and brilliant thank you for all their hard work”.

Dominic Mills, Founder & CEO of Yuup, the experience platform bringing us Evolution, comments:

“Yuup exists to create positive social impact within the community so supporting local charity initiatives is a hugely important part of taking our events to cities across UK.
