The last time I went to the theatre every month for a full year, I was 12 years old - and probably slept through a few shows on a Sunday afternoon.

National Theatre Wales have just completed their first year launch, which included 13 productions in 12 months - across Wales. I've been to see them all and can honestly say I've not even been close to falling asleep! I have been amazed, delighted and in awe of such marvelous works. The lines of theatre, reality, magic, and audience members have been blurred, or maybe even erased.

I have been to places in Wales I might've never gone to. I have talked to people I might've never talked to. And I have seen top quality work from my peers and those I admire the most.

Since the beginning they have offered everyone a NTW passport, where you get a stamp at every show you attend. If you attend all shows (and get stamps), NTW will reimburse you for them all! This video is the special day I walked from my home to NTW HQ to hand in my completed passport.

Thank you NTW! The money will go straight back to the arts - it'll go to CuatrOOjos - a collaborative project I'm organising in Colombia this summer... more soon!

Fantastic.  Worth every penny of your refund!!  Would be good to hear online from other successful passport holders (Karen Price published a photo of her passport's in the Western Mail on Saturday!)  There's still a few people with 11 stamps who need to get to Aberystwyth  - don't leave it too late folks, there's limited slots left for that show!  Carolina thanks for a lovely video and good luck for the project in Colombia!  i'm glad our refund is going to such a good cause!
