  • Thanks to a host’s suggestion – we have doubled the number of photos per listing from 10 to 20.
  • We’ve also added a smoking/non-smoking field which we’d appreciate you updating at your earliest convenience!

20 Jan 2018

  • Major Changes and improvements have been implemented on Our Digs to make it easier to use for Guests and Hosts alike.
    • Guests should find it easier to navigate and search the listings; contact hosts directly and save favourite digs for later.
    • Hosts have more control over their listing, login, adding/deleting and rearranging photos, and handling multiple listings.
  • We have now closed the old-style listings and migrated all listings over. Links remain the same.

15 Nov 2017

  • We’ve changed the bed/guest number structure on the website to show max only, so please check and adjust your numbers accordingly when you have time.
  • Nightly/weekly prices are from the minimum amount and can be adjusted per guest enquiry. If multiple digs, insert your lowest prices.
  • We’ve removed the self-upload photos tab as many were struggling with it. Instead please email any photos as and when you get them to info@ourdigs.co.uk
  • A lot of you have received queries from Guests now, please try to respond as soon as you can so we can let them know who has availability. You can just ignore the message if your digs are not a convenient fit or unavailable.
  • Some hosts were asking about me so check the FAQ page for an update!

Who’s behind Our Digs?

I’ve been hosting theatre professionals, cast and crew for nearly 30-years in the north east of England. I also host non-theatrical guests from all over the world.

Disillusioned with other online forums keeping any deposits when guests cancel - too often last minute or not even showing up - and me being a web designer, I decided to build a directory of theatre digs in the UK to put more control into the hands of the hosts and guests themselves.

That said, there are still other great resources out there to find digs, such as Theatre Digs Lists, Crew Rooms and of course Theatre Digs Booker.

Currently the site survives on a kind of ‘beerware‘ basis so donations are truly appreciated. In the future this may change so we take some sort of commission, but there are no plans just yet.
