We have launched a Kickstarter campaign to support Putting the Band Back Together to go to Edinburgh Festival. The show is part of Northern Stage's programme at Summerhall, showcasing exciting new theatre from the North. Thank you all our supporters so far. If you'd like to join them, click here. (Thank you!)

Putting the Band Back Together will premiere at The Cultural Spring's Summer Streets Festival on 17 July 2016. It will then head to Edinburgh and tour nationally from Autumn.

Every performance features a House Band of ex-players. Fancy joining? Find out more here.

Thanks to Creative Scene West Yorkshire for a great pub tour of Best in the World. You might not be surprised to read that pubs have beaten theatres in setting the highest audience average darts score yet. Congratulations to The Navigation Tavern in Mirfield!

Over the last 2 years, we have been part of very special collaboration, The Mums & Babies Ensemble. We ran events at GIFT Festival, Lyric Hammersmith, London Bubble and Camden People's Theatre. Mums talked about labour, love, time passing and new life beginning. Babies played, cried, slept and fed. Now our babies aren't babies any more, we are passing the ensemble on. Our instruction manual is now onsale here. New mums and babies ensembles are already finding their feet.

Fancy finding out more about what we've been up to? Our 2014/15 Annual Report is online. Read about our adventures here.
