SO WHAT IS THE 24:7 THEATRE FESTIVAL?
24:7 is a unique theatre festival that brings innovative drama to the people of Manchester and nurtures the writing, directing, performing and producing talent of tomorrow.
In 2004, the first Festival took place in bars and clubs around Manchester city centre. With no finance but bags of determination, we managed to attract 1,600 audience members in one week. Since then, tens of thousands have taken their seats for an hour of great entertainment.
In 2013 we’re celebrating season 10 of the festival which will include 11 world premières, rehearsed readings, scripts in development and a host of extra events featuring emerging artists from the region.Read more
