'53two' is Manchester’s newest, biggest and most versatile Arts Venue, managed by Manchester Actors’ Platform, aimed at supporting new, emerging and diverse talents.
Spanning two of Deansgate’s famous tunnels, the venue separates into two separate components; ‘53’ & ‘two’. The venue will be operated primarily as a theatre and cafe, with the space also offering room for exhibitions, gigs, events, celebrations, rehearsals, classes, conferences, banquets, weddings and more.
Perhaps most importantly, '53two' will be operated with a trust fund and once running costs have been met, profit will be held in a pot. Once this reaches a certain amount or at regular intervals, the sum or portions thereof will be donated to upcoming artists, actors and/or musicians as a bursary to train, record or develop their work.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Although we have been underwritten an amount from investors, we have to pay this back. until this is paid back we are unable to add to the trust fund.
Your donations will help equip the theatre, cafe and events space and ensure that at the earliest opportunity, we can begin to provide not only a new and exciting venue for Manchester, but also start to fill up the pot that will be returned to the arts and help emerging talent.
Whatever you give will go towards creating a better and more available fringe venue for Manchester Arts and give back to emerging talent.
