Time Won’t Wait co-creates extraordinary artistic projects with all kinds of people and organisations to affect positive social change. Our work can be seen on major stages nationally and internationally, at festivals, in schools, businesses, nightclubs or community settings. Whatever the production we bring artists and audiences together to share an experience they will never forget.

We engage with the total process of producing; from ideas generation, to writing or devising scripts, bringing together multi-disciplinary teams, visioning, planning, fundraising, partnership development, marketing, PR and general management.

We also provide consultancy, mentoring, coaching and training to companies, producers and artists. Examples of who we have worked with in this context include: HIPI (Hull Independent Producers Network), Make Amplify, Fertile Ground, Nottingham University, Tom Marshman, Yusra Warsama, Talia Randall, The Roaring Girls, Helen Goodman.

The company is founded and run by Artistic Director & Producer Sarah Sansom, supported by a non-Executive Board of Directors - Jordan Eaton, Mem Morrison, Amy Gibson and Darien Davis.
