24:7 Theatre Festival

The fifth annual 24:7 Theatre Festival will run this summer from 21 -27 July, presenting performances of new plays in a variety of non-theatre venues in Manchester.
24:7 uses non-theatre venues in Manchester city centre, including the Midland Hotel, which ties in with repertory theatre pioneer Annie Horniman’s connections in the area and Manchester City Council’s “original-modern” marketing concept.
The 16 plays bring you 16 writers, 16 directors, 65 actors and 35 crew members. That’s 132 people for starters! Adding on the festival team and volunteer staff, we are proud to announce that more than 200 24:7ers are working together to bring this festival to you
