The MancMade Community

The MancMade® Podcast

Radio X DJ Jack Wood presents the podcast defining Manchester’s DNA(ttitude). Stories with heart, soul & a sense of humour that is typically, uniquely #MancMade.

“Each podcast is different as Woods will chat to guests from different walks of life, people who have made or are making an impact on this city that nearly 3 million of us [Greater Manchester] call home. There is bonhomie, light-hearted banter, and each one a serious advert for the greater good and promotion of this surprising and ever-changing city of Manchester. Most definitely worth listening to, whether you are a Mancunian or not!”……Review by Reviewer Numbernine

MancMade® Productions

MancMade® creates platforms to showcase Manchester’s creative talent in the arts, entertainment & business.

If we don’t create those platforms, then that talent will have to go elsewhere….or worse, we’ll never get to see it in the first place.

MancMade® Productions is committed to creating high quality, original theatre, film & podcast projects.

The MancMade® Festival

The MancMade® Festival was established to showcase a diverse range of Manchester based creative talent.

To date, we have brought 16 world premiere plays to the stage of the iconic 53Two Theatre. Giving a much needed platform to Manchester based writers, actors and directors. All overseen by award winning creative director Simon Naylor.

We’ve also given that same platform to a large number of Manchester based poets, spoken word artists, artists and musicians.
