Nestled at the bottom of the Amphitheatre on the University of Bradford campus, Theatre in the Mill is a ground-breaking space discovering, nurturing and hosting exciting new work. We provide a welcome to all and are committed to making and supporting socially responsible performance that interrogates who we all are in the world and our place within it.

We believe that theatre should reflect the times and represent the breadth of voices that occupy our daily landscape. It is our ambition to genuinely be a neighbourhood theatre, a place anyone can feel at home and a space that resonates long after you have left it.

I am proud to present my first programme of work at Theatre in the Mill. This Spring/Summer season is the start of a new conversation that represents the breadth of ideas, thoughts and experiences that we think says something vital and necessary about the world we inhabit and the one we are set to inherit. This programme explores notions of identity, both individual and communal.

The radio broadcaster Ira Glass referred to the story as a machine for empathy which is the perfect way to describe the ethos and ambitions of Theatre in the Mill. There will be many opportunities to get involved and we will be piloting a number of new projects over the year including a live art kids week, regular breakfast clubs, comedy workshops and film Sundays. Visit our website or join our mailing list for regular updates, offers and the latest news.

Come find us and join in the conversation.

"TiM have been instrumental in supporting my development as an emerging artist from the North, and as a touring maker. The venue's manner of operating is entirely unique - set amongst university expertise, with staff who work hard to include work to appeal to the local and university communities and a truly original contemporary performance programme of work in progress and touring work. I am proud to be supported by Theatre in the Mill, and to have produced and performed work there." Hannah Nicklin - Theatre maker
