Last Spring, theatre-maker 
Olivia Furber spent 2 weeks getting to know the bakers, cooks, sellers and eaters of baked goods in North Kirklees. Olivia returns this February half-term to premiere her new family-theatre show inspired by the sights, smells and tastes of our towns, which is touring to theatres nationwide this Spring. 
Dough! follows hapless chefs Azad and Franky who are in a real mess, there’s chaos in their kitchen and more dough than they know what to do with. Children under 8 and their grown ups too will laugh out loud as the comedy ensues when Azad and Franky try to make the loaves, naan bread, dumplings and chapattis that remind us all of home.

Mum’s promised him that bike so even when school or homelife bites, he knows to keep his chin up, his head down and his shirt clean. Because in the end, everyone who’s good gets what they deserve. Don’t they?
Britain’s leading African theatre company tiata fahodzi present Arinzé Kene’s delicately observed and fearlessly told tale, set in the early noughties, which chronicles growing up in a multi-cultural community and the everyday injustices that drive people to take back control. Because even the most patient among us can’t wait forever.
