Hope Mill Theatre is a theatre and event space in Ancoats, Manchester, recently crowned ‘UK’s Favourite Theatre’ at the What’s on Stage Awards!

This March, Hope Mill are producing a 5-week run of RAGS the Musical, by Stephen Schwartz, which tells the story of Rebecca, a Jewish immigrant attempting to assimilate to her life in America, without losing sight of her Jewish background and identity. (

Hope Mill Theatre would love to celebrate local Jewish artists and/or artworks alongside this run, with particular focus on the themes of relocation, identity and Manchester. We are therefore offering our café/foyer space (pictures attached) as a space where artists can have their work displayed for the duration of RAGS (2nd March – 6th April).

If you are a Jewish artist, and have an existing piece that you feel sits comfortably in one or more of these themes, please do consider getting in touch. We plan to work alongside each artist on how their work is displayed and have information about each artist available at the venue, as well as social media support around the exhibition and each artist featured.

Unfortunately there is no fee attached to this opportunity, but if expenses are required for transporting artwork, Hope Mill are happy to help however we can.

If you are interested, please get in touch with Hannah at

We look forward to hearing from you!
