SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE NEXT PILOT NIGHT@ AE HARRIS, BIRMINGHAM, MAY 16th 2013 CO-PILOTED BY TIN BOX- DEADLINE 5pm on 5th APRIL PilotNights receive an ever-increasing number of applications. We cannot hope to programme all of these. For this reason your ability to meet the criteria is extremely important. PilotNights provide a space where artists making devised theatre can develop their practice in an informal and supportive atmosphere. Originally set up to support West Midlands based artists PilotNights now accept applications nationally. PilotNights believe firmly that in order to support regional development it is as important to bring in theatre makers as it is to book regional work. However,...

I am Trustee of an organisation that provides legal advice and representation to people affected by immigration legislation in Manchester (mainly asylum seekers at the moment).
