The Yard is a theatre, bar and kitchen. "The Yard is about new ideas, new writing and the live event...All the work that is created for The Yard is made in local community centres. We build partnerships with these local communities, offering free workshops in return for rehearsal space. We facilitate conversations between those who rehearse at the centre and the members to whom it belongs. And then we encourage everyone who uses the centre, takes part in a workshop, observes a rehearsal, to come and see the resulting production at The Yard."
