MBD creates and delivers bespoke experiences that share untold stories to inform, entertain and inspire people from all walks of life.

MBD was established in 1997 as a touring theatre company. A few incarnations and over twenty years later we have combined all of that theatre experience with a bit of visual arts, street arts, heritage interpretation, large scale performance, a full scale recording studio and an ongoing interest in technology.

MBD now operates in the arts and heritage sector offering a range of experiences from large-scale spectacles to intimate VR experiences. MBD has a strong track record of creating and producing arts and heritage experiences that blend theatrical narrative with new technology. MBD is constantly experimenting with the latest technology to find new ways to present our work and reach new audiences.

“Their use of new technology, performance and soundtrack offers a uniquely atmospheric experience that truly engages”

Mark Bradshaw, National Trust
