Jobs & Opportunities


We currently have no vacancies at Live Theatre.

The Listening Project

Since 2012 The Listening Project has been collecting intimate conversations between friends or relatives, to build a unique picture of our lives today. With a collection numbering over a thousand so far, with most broadcast across BBC radio, all recorded The Listening Project conversations are archived by the British Library, preserving them for future generations.

In its first visit to the North East The Listening Project will visit Live Garden, Live Theatre’s new outdoor space between Tuesday 9 to Saturday 13 August.

We are looking for people to come along for a chat. What you talk about is completely up to you. This project is about creating space for you and a loved one to have the conversation you always meant to have.

BBC Radio 4 and Live Theatre are looking for pairs of people who are close friends or family who are interested in being recorded having a conversation that may eventually end up being broadcast on BBC Radio 4. There’s no age limit, and we welcome intergenerational conversations and people from all backgrounds with interesting stories for interesting conversations.

For more information and to book a conversation slot please contact Steve Drayton at steve.drayton@bbc.co.uk or ask for a leaflet at Live Theatre’s box office.
