A Neighbourhood theatre with a global reach


Theatre in the Mill is a Bradford based arts organisation committed to developing, supporting and presenting socially responsible art and performance. Part of the University of Bradford, Theatre in the Mill was opened in the heart of the campus in 1976. Today, it comprises a studio theatre, two flexible development and performance spaces, an installation space, and a temporary community-facing city centre space.

We believe in artists and audiences, in the need to create spaces that promote dialogue and art that represents the narrative of the people the city and the region. We think theatre should be a machine for empathy and should respond to the times. We believe in the need for people to see themselves represented and portrayed in contemporary culture and that we have a responsibility to be a mirror that reflects them. We believe in positive change, in striving for equality and in eradicating the thresholds to participation. We believe in making sure our offer is open to all.
