what does peace look like?

A show like no other – in a theatre like no other


The show is happening on the main stage of Manchester’s iconic Royal Exchange Theatre,  right in the heart of the city. You can find out all about the theatre, and how to get to it, here.

The show will start at exactly 11 am on the morning of Sunday November 10th – Remembrance Sunday  – and will then carry on without break or interruption until 11 am on the Monday morning. If you are planning to come and  join us first thing on the Sunday,  please be aware that we will be asking everybody to respect the two minutes of silence that will start the show.

Directed by Neil Bartlett, the show is going to be  performed by a specially created company of 48 performers. They will be working as a relay team, appearing one after the other  to keep the marathon text of the performance going out live on air  for the whole of the 24 hours . You can find out more about the artists who will be  working on the show – and about why they want to be part of it –  here.

The doors of the Royal Exchange Theatre will be open for the whole of the twenty-four hours that the show will take to perform  – all day, and all night. You’re welcome to come and be part of the show for as long or as short a time as you like, and there is no need to book a ticket, because admission will be free.

The Royal Exchange is fully accessible. We are planning to have the show captioned, but please contact theatre near the time to confirm access requirements. If you have any questions, please contact the theatre directly  here:

24 HoP is going to be delivered by a specially assembled  one-off company of 48 performers. Find out more about them – and about the other artists working on the show – here.
