Connections 500

Greater Manchester’s youth theatres, schools and colleges perform at HOME in the National Theatre’s Connections festival, celebrating young theatre-makers.

This year marks the festival’s 21st anniversary and 500 youth theatre companies will perform 12 outstanding plays.
 The result is an unforgettable feast of theatre made by and for young people.
