Northern Broadsides are delighted to announce that actors Sir Lenny Henry CBE, Sir Tom Courtenay, Stephanie Cole OBE, Meera Syal CBE, Sanjeev Bhaskar OBE and playwrights Mike Poulton and Blake Morrison will be joining the award winning Yorkshire theatre company as Patrons.
Northern Broadsides Artistic Director Barrie Rutter said about the announcement:
“Most are famous, all are respected, some are learned, a couple write music and a couple write words and between them there is plenty of “fruit salad”- Knighthoods, OBE’s, CBE etc -but overall there is the shared passion and support for the work of Northern Broadsides.
They provide the voice of encouragement for Northern Broadsides to maintain our high standards, relish our audiences and play our part in the rich theatrical network.
We are absolutely thrilled to welcome this distinguished list of new Patrons. Their profile and commitment to theatre and communities will help enhance the reputation of Northern Broadsides as one of the country’s leading theatre companies”

Cleckleywyke, a town in the West Riding, 1908.
The Helliwells, the Parkers and the Soppitts are highly respected pillars of their community … but not for much longer.
Married on the same day in the same chapel, they gather to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. The celebrations are short lived when they discover the vicar wasn’t licensed and they are actually not married. In fact, they have been living in sin for 25 years.
Watch with mounting glee as the pandemonium switches from horrified social embarrassment to the realisation that they are free from the shackles of long tedious marriages. Home truths are dealt, bullies get their retribution and the hen-pecked are hilariously and most satisfyingly liberated.
J B Priestley’s heartily entertaining northern comedy plays right into the hands of the remarkable Northern Broadsides – a company celebrated by audiences for its charisma, vitality and relish of language.
