Monday 11th May 2015 marked the 30th anniversary of the Bradford City fire, when 56 football fans died at Valley Parade. Alongside the remembrance events a theatrical production has been touring the country.

‘The 56’ retells the story of those involved in the fire and is adapted from real-life testimonies and interviews with witnesses. The play has been very positively received and there are still plenty of opportunities to see it:

  • 23rd May: The Lowry, Salford – 0843 208 6000
  • 30th-31st of May: Theatre Deli, North Sheffield – [email protected] 
  • The 56 is also visiting the Edinburgh Fringe Festival – info here…

All the profits from The 56 will be donated to University of Bradford Burns Research Unit.
