Director Neil Bartlett’s epic Remembrance Sunday act of witness to the work of 100 contemporary peace-workers will be a show like no other.

It will start at 11am on Remembrance Sunday, 10 November, with an observation of the traditional 2 minute silence, and then continue – all day, and all night – until 11 am 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, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Toby Jones, Miranda Richardson and Don Warrington.

Join us – and be part of something extraordinary.

Join us live: The theatre will stay open throughout the 24 hours of the performance, and admission will be free.

Join us online: 24 HOURS OF PEACE will be broadcast live, in its entirety, on independent arts station Resonance FM – resonancefm.com
