More Information on Bus Ride


This Summer we invited 50 older people to accompany us on a bus ride.

We had conversations, listened to their stories, got to know them a bit and shared a nice cup of tea.

From their stories we created a theatre performance.

From Seacroft to Hawksworth Wood
From Holbeck to Chapel Allerton
From Chapeltown to Beeston
And Everywhere in between.

Moments of life as lived by older people across Leeds

Venue: QUEENS HOTEL, (City Square, Leeds LS1 1PJ)

Tickets Available at the Venue

Tickets can be purchased online until midnight on Saturday 15 February. Tickets can also be purchased at the venue on the day of the performance from 4.30pm.

Cast & Credits

by The Performance Ensemble / Director Alan Lyddiard / Choreographer Tamara McLorg / Original Music by Christopher Benstead /

Captioned Performance

Open captioning allows theatre goers with varying degrees of hearing to view the full text as it is spoken or sung, including sound effects and off stage noises. These appear on a scrolling screen, positioned on or at the side of the stage.

British Sign Language Interpreted

A Signed performance is the usual full production with the addition of a British Sign Language Interpreter who stands on the stage interpreting the show for Deaf attendees.

Audio Described

Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.

Relaxed Performance

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.

Dementia-Friendly Performance

A relaxed performance with adaptations to technical aspects of the show, flexible seating options and a relaxed attitude to audience responses and movement in the auditorium. In our front of house space we will have a quiet room, clearer visual markers and signage, and additional staff and volunteers trained to sensitively and respectfully welcome people living with dementia and their supporters to this show.

Sing Along

Sing along with the cast in this exclusive performance. Lyrics will be on screen, so you can join in as loud as you like. Open to all, fancy dress is optional but highly recommended.
