Middle Child move into Bond 31

We have a new moonbase: Bond 31.

One year after we left Darley’s, our home of nine years, and set-up shop on our various sofas throughout lockdown, Middle Child have moved into a new space in Hull city centre.

We’ve taken over the ground floor of the old Bond 31 warehouse at 42-43 High Street, which backs onto the river Hull.

The suite will house an accessible rehearsal space, theatre library and office, as well as a new writing room, hot desking space and kitchen facilities.

Middle Child HQ isn’t open to the public just yet, as we are still decorating, but will be soon.

We’re working with Resolve, who recycle and refurbish commercial spaces, to prepare it to meet our needs and those of theatre workers in Hull.

As with Darley’s, we will open-up our new home for others to use.

Once again, we’d like to thank those freelancers who took part in our Imagine the Future day, earlier this year, and fed back what you need from a space in Hull.

We’ll soon have more information available about Bond 31 and its facilities.

In the meantime, our core team is working from here Tuesday to Friday every week, as we settle in and make it our home.

Do give us a knock on the big window if you pass by!

Thank you to Wykeland and the Cultural Recovery Fund for their support.
