We are excited to announce we are making Multiverse Arcade a brand new interactive mission for young people. It is being presented as part of Great Exhibition of the North from 22 June to 9 September. Read more about it here.

We are currently recruiting for 2 new trustees to join our board. Interested? Read more here.

We can't wait to get back on the road, with 2 of our best-loved shows back out on tour.

Best in the World is touring the pubs and clubs of South Tyneside with Cultural Spring, 12-16 March . There'll be pies, peas and plenty of chances to throw some darts along the way. Tickets on sale here.

Putting the Band Back Together is coming to Chapel FM in Seacroft on 10 March. Tickets are Pay What You Like. Book for the show (and even join the house band) here.

We are unbelievably delighted that Unfolding Theatre has been awarded Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation funding for 2018-22. This will support us to make 4 major new pieces, tour and enable lots more people to take part in our creative processes.

You can find out more about us by reading our 2016/17 Annual Report. You can also read about the experiences of the people who came and played onstage with us in Putting the Band Back Together in Maddy Costa's beautiful 'zine, Stories from the House Band.
