If one thing perhaps comes through predominantly from Stadium, it’s that there is less between the bitter rivalries of football, and society itself, than we thought. And that is a message which can only be shouted louder and louder from the theatres and the communities around the UK.

Plays to See

There were ongoing conversations between the audience and the people on stage, creating a community-like feel in the theatre, mirroring what these football fans feel in the stadium – which is pretty remarkable.

Sincerely Amy

Letting Brum's communities take charge deserves our praise for offering something new.

What’s On

A charming portrayal of the footballing divide between Blues and Villa
