24:7 Theatre Festival

This month, all the city’s a stage as the 24:7 Theatre Festival returns for its third successive year. Showcasing a range of new writing and performing talent in a variety of non-theatre venues, the 24:7 Festival is all about discovering fresh talent and injecting a few drops of new blood into the theatre industry.

Over one week, from July 24th to the 30th, more than 80 performances of 17 plays by aspiring playwrights will take place, across 5 non-theatre venues.

Anyone who calls themselves a theatre lover must see at least one of the plays in this year’s festival, unless they have a very good excuse not to (serious illness/death in the family/dog ate your tickets - delete as appropriate).

With such a wide variety of plays, from the heart rendering to the utterly hilarious, there really is something for anybody with even the slightest interest in the theatre.

For those who aren’t content watching from the stalls and want to get hands on, there will be workshops held everyday to help hone your skills or give you a taster of some special theatre art, such as stage combat, harmony singing or writing as revenge.

The festival will be a great opportunity for Thespian types to network, and will hopefully inspire new up and coming playwrights to get their quill scribbling away in time for next year’s festival.

Of the festival, actor Robert Powell says "24:7 has already established itself as one of the strongest theatre festivals in the country. The fact that it's already attracting such big audiences after only two years is testament to the quality of the material being showcased. It's great to see Manchester leading the way!"
