The Pierhead is a unique visitor, events and conference venue for the people of Wales; a space to express opinions and give voice to issues that matter to you as individuals, communities or organisations. Built in 1897, this Grade I listed building was originally the headquarters of the Cardiff Railway Company, replacing the original Bute Dock Company offices which burnt down in 1892.
Things to do
The Conference of the Birds: Curlew & Great Auk
Artist and animator Sean Harris gives voice to two iconic birds: the Curlew – which may be gone from Wales in less than a decade – and the Great Auk – whose tragic demise, bookended by pioneering Welsh science, raises stark questions of our capacity to learn from past mistakes. Sponsored by Llyr Gruffydd MS, Mark Isherwood MS and Carolyn Thomas MS. Dates: 19 September- 12 December 2023.
