Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, our usual recommendations for theatre in Manchester and the North are a little different.
We most certainly cannot wait to be back in the stalls again…until then our theatre guide brings online theatre festival fun, a live drive-in musical, screenings and interactive performance to enjoy at home.
We are so grateful to National Lottery players, The National Lottery, DCMS and Arts Council England for supporting our freelance writers during this crisis. This means that, although venues remain shut and campaigns cancelled, our writers can be reengaged to help arts organisations and artists across the North of England share their online content with our culture-hungry readers.
Make sure to check back often – we’re adding more good cultural stuff as we find it.
