Shipley Royalty!

We are proud to be a small part of SHIPLEY STREET ARTS FESTIVAL 2016!

With three days (Friday 1st July to Sunday 3rd July) of fantastic performances from internationally-renowned street theatre companies and creative arts from the local community on the streets of Shipley, this year’s Festival is set to be bigger and better than ever.

Shipley is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, in the form Scipelei - thats cooler than a Maharaja!

Nutkhut are no strangers to Shipley, the City of Bradford and West Yorkshire - we've been performing with artists, communities and festivals in the region since the mid 1990's.

Shipley Street Arts Festival is a not-for-profit festival created and run by Shipley-based street theatre company, Q20 Events.

Remembrance Sunday 2016

Dr Blighty - 'For those who came before' from Nutkhut on Vimeo.

Remembrance Sunday - earlier this year Dr Blighty paid its respects to soldiers of the Empire who fought in both World War's and conflicts which followed. These soldiers and families have largely been forgottern and do not appear in our news items, in our history books and are not taught in our schools. Culture and Art brings people together and can make a small contribution to re-address our collective memory.

A Nutkhut production co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions, Brighton Festival, and Royal Pavilion & Museums, Brighton & Hove. Supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England, QED, and by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

1.5 Million Indian men went to war.

2,500 awoke in a palace…

'As part of Britain’s Centenary Anniversary of the First World War Nutkhut presented an ambitious programme of immersive performances and installations based in Brighton’s Royal Pavilion Garden which bring the past into the present, immersing the audience in the untold history of these brave soldiers, so far from home, fighting the war of other men.'

Against all the odds, the ZEE London Mela returned for 2016 in a new home at Wembley Park last September! It was a huge challenge for all involved to bring the usual Mela Magic to such a new and different venue, but thanks to the hard work of some amazing people and performers - WE DID IT!
