Thanks for stopping by

 

We’ve been working hard to create a new hostel for artists visiting the region- making it easier for exciting theatre talent to come be a part of the Yorkshire scene. There was a lovely piece in The Stage here. If you have need of somewhere to stay whilst visiting Leeds and Yorkshire for theatre then you can enquire here

We’re recently back from a trip to Calais. Thanks so much to everyone that contributed to the recent appeal for much needed items which were gratefully received by the wonderful Crew For Calais team on the other side of the Channel. We managed to feed a lot of hungry volunteers while we were out there too!

We had a great turn out for our open writing workshop last weekend. Keep an eye out over the coming weeks for signs popping up around the Holbeck area detailing the stories that were created from the session.

The Knowledge Emporium had a delightful outing at Cleethorpes recently too. Thanks to all the good people that came along to share your knowledge with us.

We are really pleased to announce that our HUB choir will return in September. Our sessions run on Tuesday evenings and start by sharing a meal together before the singing begins. As well as welcoming back any existing choir members we are also looking for some new members to join us. So if you enjoy singing and would like to sign up, you can do so here. Both the writers workshop and the choir are completely free.

Events at the HUB will return next month in September. Click on the listings to the right for more details.
We’ll be taking part once more in Scalarama on Thurs 15th. Joining forces with Yorkshire Silents we’ll host a very special rare screening with live music.  We’ll be announcing the title very very soon, so stay tuned!

Also in September, we head to Switzerland making a new piece to celebrate the birthday of DAS THEATER an der Effingerstrasse – we are very excited to be making new connections with our European neighbours. More information here.

You can still see James Phillips’ wonderful photographs here from the Fairy Portal Camp in Stratford-upon-Avon that we created with the RSC.  And you can also still listen to or download  the batch of 15 Minute Live plays that we recorded at The Holbeck.

More news next month but as ever tune in regularly on Twitter and Facebook for more regular updates.

See you soon
