Two of the city’s live performance organisers First Draft and The Real Story get together for a seasonal special, presenting an evening of winter songs and storytelling by hand-picked performers, designed to warm the cockles.
Seasonal storytelling comes to the catacombs of St George’s Hall, with a promenade performance of Charles Dickens’ classic novel A Christmas Carol. Don’t be a Scrooge – book your ticket now!
Eighty-odd writers and artists join forces across six dates to create brand-new collaborative works for performance around the North West, starting in York and ending in Liverpool. Manchester double acts include Richard Barrett and Tim Allen, Helmut Lemke and Tony Trehy, and Enemies Project curators SJ Fowler and Tom Jenks.
Live literature night Verbose celebrates its second birthday with readings from flash fiction headliners David Swann, Ashley Chantler and Peter Blair, plus the usual open mic of prose and poetry performances, all served up by host Sarah-Clare Conlon.
