New Play-Reading Dates

March 18, 2010 1 comment

The dates for upcoming sessions of our popular Play-Reading Group are now all booked in and tickets for them will go on sale on Wednesday 24th April from the Theatre Box Office – (0161) 236 7110. These sessions are always very popular so advanced booking is recommended!

There is one change this term. Due to the closure of Central Library sessions will take place at The Friend’s Meeting House on Mount Street just behind the Library, and will run from 1.30pm-3.30pm instead of the normal morning session. This will only be for the summer though… When we come back in Autumn we will be based at the new temporary library in Elliott House on Deansgate and sessions will return to their normal morning slot of 10.45am – 12.45pm.

Want to keep in touch with this group? Why not join our email list? Just send a message to with Mailing List in the subject box and we’ll add you.

Here’s a taster of the film that we created to celebrate this year’s Book Award with a group of young people at Clayton Library.  And just in case you don’t know what the Manchester Book Award is – have a look here to find out more.

We’ll be there tomorrow and can’t wait to find out who wins!
