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:
