24:7 stays open into the future

David Upton

Manchester’s 24:7 Theatre Festival is to undergo a new format of event that will run in alternate years with the Manchester International Festival and will start in July 2016.

In the meantime, there will still be a Big Weekend of events for July 2015 which will will be a taster of the future.

There’ll soon be a call for scripts (but a reduced number of productions), a set of short pieces, rehearsed readings, workshops, and “something for the little ones…”.
