TakeOver and out

TakeOver finished just over a week ago and Belt Up are currently relaxing before starting rehearsals again for the Southwark Playhouse runs (tickets available now from We’ve also been settling in to our new office as part of our new residency at York Theatre Royal.

Talback session after Tartuffe

TakeOver was a massive success, both for the people who made it and the people who saw it. It was great to see so many young people at the YTR and we hope that this is a sign of things to come. As for our shows, we couldn’t be happier with how they went – ‘The Trial’ sold out entirely and both shows of ‘The Tartuffe’ finished with 500 person standing ovations. Was great to see the shows translating to their new venues so comfortably. We’re now in the planning stages for our next projects at YTR so watch out around York over the next few months; you never know where we might appear.

Belt Up in York

Belt Up's run of the Trial as part of York Theatre Royal's TakeOver09 is nearing its end. If you've missed us up in the North then do not worry, we have recently taken up a residency at the York Theatre Royal and so will be sticking around over the next year. We're not fully sure what will be produced over the next year but that's all part of the excitement. Keep an eye out!

Of course we'll still be appearing around the country. Tickets are now available for our run at the Southwark Playhouse and can be booked online at We'll also be appearing around the UK throughout 2010 so again keep an eye out
