This is a play about female solidarity.

There Are No Beginnings, Leeds Playhouse

Between the years of 1975 and 1980 the women of Leeds lived in fear, but the reign of terror created by the Yorkshire Ripper also gave birth to a steadfast solidarity and that’s what There Are No Beginnings is about. Book your tickets.

Do three firsts in one day with a visit to the city’s newest steakhouse and tickets to the opening night of There Are No Beginnings in the newly opened Bramall Rock Void…

There Are No Beginnings follows the lives of four women during the era of the Yorkshire Ripper. From 1975 to 1980, one man changed the lives of millions of women – but this isn’t a play about him, it’s about them. Charley Miles, the woman behind this extraordinary piece, has charted the emotional journey through those five years, with the help of the women who lived through them. It’s a must see, so how would you like to win tickets?

We’re giving away two tickets to the opening night of There Are No Beginnings on Friday 11th October 2019. This isn’t a play about a killer, it’s a play about the complexities of being a woman, at a time when no one felt safe. It’ll take you on a journey of discovery with four women. You’ll follow two teenagers, a mother and a young police officer through five transformational years, from initial indifference to genuine fear, and see how their lives are changed by what’s going on around them.

There Are No Beginnings will be the first show ever performed in the Bramall Rock Void, a unique new performance space that feels inherently Leeds. The deep red brick walls of the foundations mirror the ones you’ll see all over the city and they give it a sense of place that’s uniquely suited to There Are No Beginnings. This is an incredibly intimate space, and the play itself will be performed in traverse, with the audience on either side of the stage, so you can watch as the scenes collide, overlapping each other to create a totally immersive experience.

Feast on the finest Wagyu steaks & burgers before the show

Wagyu, Victoria Gate

There’s a new steakhouse in town! Wagyu Bar & Grill has made itself at home in Victoria Leeds with a two-storey restaurant that cooks up the finest local steaks, sourced from Warrendale Farm, near York. If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll bag a three-course dinner for two with a bottle of wine to share, which means you can try a little bit of everything.

Start with slow-cooked wagyu steak beef cheek croquettes or truffle and bacon popcorn before you move onto the main event. From sirloin to fillet, you can get all your favourite steaks, alongside loaded burgers and unexpected treats like Wagyu hash. Veggies have their own Vegyu burger and vegans can try the special of the day.
