David Slack of Manchester’s 24:7 Festival

23rd May 2011



The Executive Producer of the 24:7 Theatre Festival, an event that focuses on new writing in Manchester and is now in its eighth year, chats to David Chadderton about the origins, significance and influence of the festival, which runs annually in late July. Recorded at the Royal Exchange, Manchester, 23 May 2011.

It’s called 24:7 not because it takes place all week and all night but because the end of July was a time when we thought we’d be able to attract a lot of theatre performers to participate in the event.
