Contact in Manchester has secured a £600,000 funding grant from global charitable foundation Wellcome, as part of a £6.5 million capital redevelopment. Contact is the nationally renowned venue that develops radical new theatre with young people.

The funding grant will support a new venue within the building focussing on health and wellbeing projects plus the recruitment of a health and science producer to support the Wellcome programme.
