Ladyfriends is a new LGBTQ+ show coming to Manchester’s 53two venue May 3–4.

It’s about suffragettes Annie Kenney and Christabel Pankhurst, a lesbian period drama of their lives. With power ballads. And maybe a disco ball.

Meanwhile, the venue has launched a charitable initiative to support new, emerging and underserved artists at their arches home.

53two will offer new companies or individuals discounted and deferred-payment room hire at their fully accessible studio and/or theatre.
