The Sneaky Story



The Sneaky adventure started back in 2011 when Julia Benfield began creating adventurous live cinema screenings in Leeds, since then Sneaky has grown and we’re now the leading outdoor cinema specialists in the North.

But we don’t just do cinema.

Sneaky create unique events for unusual spaces, that could be a film experience, a promenade performance, a mini festival or a Narnia themed Christmas market with live music, performances and a walking, talking tree.

Our events are bespoke and bonkers and we love working on them.

As well as a core creative team Sneaky work with professional actors, storytellers, puppeteers, musicians and cabaret performers to create new experiences for each event.

When developing shows for children we work with early years teachers and parents to ensure they are the perfect entertainment for young audiences. Performances for young children are short, usually in a promenade format and always with lots of noise and interaction – because who wants to sit down and watch a show quietly when you’re six?

At our evening events we work on creating shows that are unique served up with a themed cocktail menu and a dash of bewilderment. Audience members are encouraged to dress up as part of the fun and then they are free to explore the venue, chat to our actors in character and discover hidden surprises. For bigger events we usually have a fabulous pop-up photo booth complete with  themed set, props and inventive art direction. Check out the albums from our past events here.

When working with partners we support quality, local, independent businesses and that’s who you’ll find serving food and selling their wares.

So that’s us! Basically it’s Sneaky’s mission to find fun, silly things for audiences to enjoy. If you think that sounds like your sort of thing then what are you waiting for?
