There’s so much to see in Hackney Wick‘s warehouse theatre.
The annual NOW Festival showcases double-bills of challenging, big ideas, daring audiences to try new things and experience new perspectives.
If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary to fill your winter with, it’s definitely worth the trip to The Yard Theatre.
