Two Leeds women are to run an arts festival to attract young people into a London theatre to experience the venue as a centre of performance.
The scheme got under way when Leeds-born directors Emma Gordon and Alexa Christopher-Daniels introduced their project, Twenty 2e7en, to young arts professionals at the New End Theatre in Hampstead in January.
Following the event, a core company was established comprising 12 directors, performers and designers. As a result, Ms Gordon and Ms Christopher-Daniels have created the two-day festival at the theatre.
