Who are Slung Low

Slung Low is a company that makes adventures for audiences outside of conventional theatre spaces.

Slung Low’s aim is to make unlikely, ambitious and original adventures for audiences, each with powerful, moving story at its heart. Shows that re-examine how audiences go and see a piece of theatre. Our ambition has always been to transport our audience to new places and to make them see familiar places from new perspectives.

Slung Low’s home is the Holbeck Underground Ballroom (The HUB). Five railway arches in Holbeck South Leeds.

The HUB is a rehearsal space which we make available to those making performance in the region who have need of it.

The HUB is also a place where we can invite exciting new work from other companies and present them to an audience; a makeshift performance space.

We also understand that in these times committing to see a piece of theatre isn’t the easiest of choices, so we will always welcome you as warmly as we can, the kettle will always be on, and because everyone has different circumstances as many of our shows as possible will be “pay what you decide”- you give the amount of money you think is right after you see the show.

We look forward to welcoming you.

'I have put Holbeck in my address for the last two years but today was the first time I discovered the heart of it - I had no idea about the pubs, social clubs, quaint back to back terraces and history that makes up the real Holbeck, south of the canal.  A big thanks to Slung Low for opening my eyes to a place I have claimed to call home.'  - Audience Member
