Formed in 1992 by Artistic Director Barrie Rutter, Northern Broadsides is a multi-award winning touring company based in the historic Dean Clough Mill in Halifax, West Yorkshire. We are delighted to be one of the key National Portfolio Organisations in receipt of ACE funding.
The company has built up a formidable reputation, our repertoire combines Shakespeare, European and English Classic plays and new writing. Productions are noted for their distinctive northern voice, strong musicality and clear narrative journey. Northern Broadsides’ unique theatrical voice is inventive, invigorating, and accessible to all.
Since 1992, we have toured the UK and built up a large following in many regular venues such as WYP, Stephen Joseph Theatre, New Vic, The Rose, The Lowry and often in unconventional locations such as The Tower of London, cattle markets, churches, indoor riding stables and Victorian mills.
Northern Broadsides continues to delight audiences nationally and internationally.
“…here is the true, beating heart of British theatre.” Michael Coveney, The Daily Mail
