With Autumn truly upon us and our first season with no greenroom - for anyone like me, feeling a bit bereft and in need of some performance...
After a good scour of the websites and brochures, below is a list of all the performance work I think might be worth finding out a bit more about within travelling distance of Manchester (bear in mind that's my idea of travelling distance... I'm a demon driver...!)
I don't vouch for the accuracy, nor do I necessarily know that much about some of the work - but I thought it was worth putting up a big, pre-planning list and you can make up your own minds.
Anything in Manchester or Salford is shaded in yellow.
As I find out more over the coming weeks, I'll post top tips or the things I'm going to on a more regular basis. To keep in touch, join the mailing list, by mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
