The Flanagan Collective is an international award-winning cross-genre arts collective based in North Yorkshire, UK.

Since 2011 The Flanagan Collective has been creating new opportunities for performers to test new work, form collaborations and embrace new models of theatre-making.


Started in 2010 by Producer Phil Grainger and Writer David Jarman, Gobbledigook have gained a reputation for their high energy, immersive theatre, both in community shows, and professional productions.

In the last 3 years they have produced Alice in Wonderland (York Theatre Royal, 2015) and The Wind in the Willows (Bolton Abbey, 2016), as large scale, outdoor promenade shows. These were both received with overwhelming popularity from audiences, and press alike. Last year saw a Brand New adaption of Robin Hood (Bolton Abbey), written by David Jarman, and Enid Bylton’s ‘The Famous Five’, created by Alexander Wright, Phil Grainger, and the original Company.
