About us

"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.

In six years, 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 U.K.

We have become a necessity in theatre, upending traditions to fill the gap between performance and writing.
