Pen:Chant Protest & Revolution

Fri 24 Nov 2017 – Sat 25 Nov 2017

Toiling down the art mines, Pen:Chant taps the seams of spoken word, comedy, live music, contemporary performance and everything in between. Unearthing gems from Manchester, the UK and around the world we present them to you, confident they’ll make your hearts and minds sparkle!

For this protest & revolution special, we’ll be presenting a special line-up of acts whose art is not a mirror, but a hammer – not reflecting but shaping (cheers Brecht!). And even if they don’t change the world tonight, they’ll certainly change yours.


Theatre 2

Theatre 2 (T2) is our black box studio theatre and events space on our first floor. The space has pull out bleacher style bench seating with a flexible capacity of up to 132. The seating can be stored to allow for a number of different layouts and set ups. The studio is accessed by a large scenic lift which allows equipment and scenery to be delivered straight into the space.
