Best in the World is back on the road for 2019! We're heading to The Ropewalk in Lincolnshire and Chapel FM Arts Centre in Leeds. Come and join us for a great night, a few darts and stories of our gold medal moments!

If you want to hear more about Best in the World listen again to Alex and Annie on Radio 4 here.

In January we brought a new team together to start work making a show exploring memory. They are theatre-makers Alex Elliott, Luca Rutherford and Selina Thompson, musicians, Mariam Rezaei and Paul Smith, Associate Artist, Garry Lydon, director, Annie Rigby and choreographer, Liv Lorent. Dream team! We'll keep you posted about chances to see work-in-progress later in the year.

Thank you to the 16,701 people who visited Multiverse Arcade in 2018. Over 4,000 people added their voices to the arcade. They shared their ideas for the changes we need to make to save the future. Hear what they had to say at our Multiverse Arcade Insta. Later this year we are taking Multiverse Arcade on the road. More details coming soon!

You can find out more about us by reading our 2016/17 Annual Report. You can also read about the experiences of the people who came and played onstage with us in Putting the Band Back Together in Maddy Costa's beautiful 'zine, Stories from the House Band.
