“The future has arrived in Hackney Wick in the form of The Yard” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
The Yard is a theatre and music venue in a converted warehouse in Hackney Wick.
Built out of salvaged material by a group of 50 dedicated volunteers led by Artistic Director Jay Miller, we are committed to telling contemporary stories in contemporary ways.
We’re at the centre of our community, reaching thousands of local people every year through programmes in local schools and in the community centres we run: Hub67 in Hackney Wick and The Hall in East Village. We run creative projects for young people aged 4-19 years to make work for our stage, and offer regular activities and resources for local people.
Since 2011 our work has been seen by hundreds of thousands of people. Shows we have made have transferred to the National Theatre, been turned into television series and toured the UK.
We have become a necessity in theatre, upending traditions to fill the gap between performance and writing.
