Birmingham Royal Ballet
Birmingham Royal Ballet (BRB) is one of the world’s best classical ballet companies, respected for its excellence, artistic innovation and social responsibility, that connects with its audiences and communities in its home city of Birmingham, throughout the UK and across the world.
BRB shares the ambition of its home city of Birmingham to be recognised internationally as a successful, innovative and culturally diverse by becoming a focus for excellence in dance development and performance.
The National Theatre is dedicated to making the very best theatre and sharing it with as many people as possible. Their work is also seen on tour throughout the UK and internationally, and in collaborations and co-productions with regional theatres.
Popular shows transfer to the West End and occasionally to Broadway; and through the National Theatre Live programme they broadcast live performances to 2,000 cinemas in 50 countries around the world.
Opera North is England’s national opera company in the North and one of Europe’s leading arts organisations.
It is committed to producing work of the highest quality that excites, challenges and entertains. It tours not only throughout the North of England and to London, but also to opera houses on the continent in cities such as Prague and Barcelona, and it performs at major international festivals including Edinburgh and Ravenna.

Welcome to Rambert.
We believe that to give brilliant and daring people the chance to inspire others is to give them the power to change the world for the better. As one of the world’s most diverse companies of dancers we transform everyday spaces by making dance that is awe-inspiring, adventurous, dynamic, and relevant, and taking it to our neighbourhood, the nation and the world. We want to hear the most exciting and radical ideas wherever they may come from and connect with brilliant and daring audiences and participants from all backgrounds. Through performances; dance and wellness classes and courses for people of all ages and abilities we want to ensure we are inspiring, engaging and relevant to everyone. Rambert’s Chief Executive is Helen Shute and Benoit Swan Pouffer is Artistic Director. Rambert is a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England.
