About

Bradford is one of our homes. Co-director Evie grew up in Bradford and has making theatre here since she was about 7, first on her mum’s street and then returning in 2011 to make theatre in houses, boxing gyms, Bradford City Hall and loads of places in between. So many ideas for the plays have come from chatting to people from Bradford and we know it is a city full of experiences and stories. Bradford is also the youngest city in the UK with 45% of the population and is why Speakers Corner is such an important collective – a collective ran by young people taking action on things most important to them.

In Bradford there are also so many incredible organisations working with people and we are proud call lots of them our friends and are always open to new ways of working with people in our city. Look out for different things we do throughout the year in upcoming and hopefully we’ll see you at a show, workshop or with Speakers Corner soon.

We’re based on the first floor of the Aspire Building on the corner of Oastler Market. If you’d like to get involved in anything we’re doing, would like us to deliver a workshop with your group, volunteer with us or do some work experience we’d love to hear from you.
