After the Big Festival Weekend….

This 12th edition will be the final Festival in our recognisable format. Have we run our course? There are many initiatives now underway by any number of agencies, large and small, and we would hate to be more of a competitor than collaborator.

When there was next to nothing happening for developing and emerging theatre-makers in Manchester, we led the way in putting on small-scale work in non-theatre venues. Many have followed and are doing the same, which is what we wanted!

We led in giving opportunity to groups of theatre-makers – hundreds have been part of our Festivals – and now the established producing theatres are being funded to set up schemes to do that.

We’re not finished in our mission – we will continue to develop people – so look out for the 24:7 in different guises in the future!

WRITERS

To further maintain and develop our unique relationship with writers, 24:7 is not only continuing to run writers’ lunches and writing events, but will offer mentoring support and one-off workshops. We are also hoping to offer dramaturgical support, rehearsed readings with actors, and discussion groups.

“Writers have always been at the forefront of what makes 24:7 unique,” says Writers’ Liaison Ian Townsend, “and we intend to continue our support and encouragement. It really does show how passionate 24:7 is to develop emerging writing talent, helping writers get to grips with their plays and how to make the best of them.”
