The Table

One gruff Biblical puppet and a bog standard table make for an evening heavy on laughs, laughs and more laughs.


Stunning visuals, sublime acting and far more laughs than you might expect, this is a classic adaptation done almost entirely right.

Ballett Zurich

Two sharply satisfying pieces of choreography make for an evening of dark spirits, thumping rhythms and phenomenal dance talent.

Scaramouche Jones

Scaramouche Jones

A twisted adventure tale with the dark heart of the 20th Century at its core, this is hauntingly compelling and skilfully told.



A superb concept sadly produces a show that is decent rather than great.

Thrones The Musical

Thrones! The Musical

A collection of songs, skits and knob gags, this has none of the good points of the show it claims to love.

Interview: Harmonium Project

A brand spanking new, one-off live event, to celebrate 50 years of the EIF and the Festival Chorus – producer Jo Walsh talks us through what was involved.

Romeo and Juliet

An elegant, sharp Northern Ballet production, which puts the beauty of the human form and heart centre stage.
