24 Hours of Peace, Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester


Acclaimed Writer and Director Neil Bartlett is using the words of a hundred contemporary peace workers to create a marathon artwork entitled 24 HOURS OF PEACE – a twenty-four-hour-long performance dedicated to the work of peace taking place on Remembrance Sunday (10 November 2019). This unique event begins at 11am with the performers and audience joining together for two minutes of silence. This moment marks the 100th anniversary of the very first Remembrance Sunday silence, the performance continues uninterrupted for a whole day and night until 11am on Monday 11 November.  Performers who have already said they will be part of this remarkable event include (subject to professional availability) Adjoa Andoh, Liz Carr, Scilla Elworthy, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Toby Jones, Miranda Richardson and Don Warrington.  The event is free and will be broadcast live on national radio station Resonance FM.
