'In case you still haven’t discovered Theatre in the Mill, it’s the place to go to in Bradford for contemporary theatre. You’ll see work, often in development, which performance artists are passionate about making, alongside critical discussion with artists and audiences about the work in development…There’s a brilliant little bar inside and they even stock that chocolate-coated marshmallow wonder, the Tunnocks tea cake. So there’s really no excuse not to be there!' Irna Qureshi for Culture Vulture
