Manchester International Festival

Many thanks for your seamless management of our technical residency at the theatre last week. Your facilities are superb – that’s without question - but it is you and your colleagues that made it such a successful experience for the Maggie the Cat gang.

Clearly, your professional knowledge is far-reaching and your generosity in going the extra mile made it possible for us to explore and test the elements of our production to the fullest extent.

Please pass on our thanks to everyone – to Keith and Allison and their teams and the very patient and lovely staff at reception – and hopefully we’ll see you at the world premiere of Maggie the Cat.

We absolutely love using the Academy Theatre for our productions! Not only are the facilities second to none and location fantastic, but the staff are so helpful and nothing is too big or too small for them. Putting on a production can be quite stressful, but using the Academy takes away the stress and helps to ensure a smooth process. Thank you. We highly recommend!

Small scale pro tours, Fringe, and Amateurs alike... if you are looking for a venue in Manchester... this is where you need to be!! Excellent facilities and car park too!

I want to say a massive thank you for allowing us to use your theatre for the panto. The children had a real theatre experience and absolutely enjoyed themselves. Without your help this could have not possibly happened.
