Everyone at Middle Child is absolutely buzzing to be part of the Arts Council's National Portfolio. This decision allows us to be bolder and more ambitious than ever before as we continue to build on a brilliant year for Hull.
We are now able to put into action our long term strategy of setting fire to expectations of what a night at the theatre can be. We will make the most of the confidence shown in us by the Arts Council and will become a stronger, more diverse company who are truly integrated into our local community.
Thank you to all of the friends, supporters and audiences who have been a part of the Middle Child story until now. We can't wait to begin the next chapter of the gig theatre movement.
We'd also like to congratulate Hull Truck Theatre, Artlink, Freedom Festival Arts Trust, Hull Museums and J-Night for retaining their National Portfolio Organisation status, which taken together is a testament to the city’s success.
