Playing our part for Liverpool

At Unity, we make space for anyone and everyone to create. Whether we’re working in our home on Hope Place, out in the city’s streets or online, we encourage artists to explore the world we inhabit in the way that suits their story best.

Unity is an intimate venue for world-class entertainment, with two exciting performance spaces and a warm, friendly welcome. With everything from theatre and comedy to creative workshops and festivals, our vast, affordable programme celebrates communities in Liverpool and far beyond.

One of the things we love about Liverpool is that it’s full of creators and makers who tell stories in their own unique way, and that’s why we’re proud to be part of Liverpool’s wider theatre family – venues and companies that support each other and make the city a richer place to live in and visit.

We can’t wait to welcome you along to Unity soon, but remember that there are countless stories waiting to be told in Liverpool, and you’ll find some of them in our city’s other wonderful theatre venues too…
