“Now more than ever it is relevant to have a programme that puts diversity and inclusion at the heart of what to include, not the box ticker it is for most.

theSpaceUK does not put profits or fame on its agenda, instead giving a chance to shows that defy the norm, featuring the most LGBTQ+ shows of any venue company. It was open, fresh and at times, a tough medicine but exactly what was needed.

The programme rightly won our most dynamic programme award of 2019, down to its variety of shows and all round passion for diversity. More than just LGBTQ+ it hosted shows tackling racism, disabilities and more. No area of theatre was off limits and all ceilings were broken. theSpaceUK has leaped forward and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
