We are delighted to be back at Battersea Arts Centre this April. We will be blowing the dust off our musical instruments and working on brand new show, Putting the Band Back Together.

Come and see how we get on (and even join the house band!) We're doing 2 work-in-progress performances at 9pm, 28 & 29 April. Book tickets (Pay What You Like) here. Part of A Nation's Theatre.

Putting the Band Back Together will premiere at The Cultural Spring's Summer Streets Festival on 17 July 2016. Fancy joining our Sunderland house band, and playing as part of the premiere performance? Come along to FREE workshops to get involved. The workshops take place at Miss Tina's, Beaumont Street, Southwick, Sunderland, SR5 2JR.

Over the last 2 years, we have been part of very special collaboration, The Mums & Babies Ensemble. We ran events at GIFT Festival, Lyric Hammersmith, London Bubble and Camden People's Theatre. Mums talked about labour, love, time passing and new life beginning. Babies played, cried, slept and fed. Now our babies aren't babies any more, we are passing the ensemble on. Our instruction manual is now onsale here. New mums and babies ensembles are already finding their feet.

Fancy finding out more about what we've been up to? Our 2014/15 Annual Report is online. Read about our adventures here.
