Join us to celebrate our Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

21 July, 5 – 7:30pm, Comedy Store Manchester

You may have heard that 24:7 has been honoured with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and are following up with a Celebration for 24:7ers from over the years.

So many people have had a hand in inventing, developing, producing and promoting the work of 24:7 since we took our first soundings in 2002. This Celebration will bring together friends from over the years who can share their memories and have their photo taken with the Award for our Big Album.

We want to gather as many stories as possible, not just about the productions, but about the venues we have used, friendships that have been made and the achievements enjoyed as a result of being associated with 24:7.

If you can’t make it in person, then you’ll miss the drinks and the pizza… but you can still be involved by either recording a video message and sending it or by writing some thoughts in an email to award@247theatrefestival.co.uk

We’ve asked past participants who are inspired to write a song or a poem, devise some physical theatre (or even interpretative dance!), or pen a short script. We’re planning a programme of turns to entertain us and remind us of a highlight of their involvement!

Please RSVP to let us know you’re coming: http://247qavs.eventbrite.co.uk

Thanks again for being a member of this splendid network!

Hoping to see you there

Over the years, to maintain and develop our unique relationship with writers, 24:7 has not only run writers’ lunches and writing events, but offered mentoring support and one-off workshops. We have also offered dramaturgical support, rehearsed readings with actors, and discussion groups.

We ask for your patience as we fix our future plans. If you sign up for the eNews, you’ll be among the first to know what they are!
