The Fire Garden at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 22–23 October 2021, free entry - Visit now

Enjoy a fiery night-time arts installation on HOME’s former Homeground site this October. The Fire Garden will transform the empty city-centre space into a unique family-friendly spectacle of flames and heat.

Created by outdoor arts aficionados Walk the Plank, The Fire Garden will see hand-crafted, intricate fire sculptures create a landscape of wonder. Audiences are encouraged to wander through or stand and watch – close enough to enjoy the warmth. With crackling embers, shimmering shapes and plumes of fire, Walk the Plank are adept at making an everyday familiar space feel different and new.

A unique family-friendly spectacle of flames and heat.

Walk the Plank have wowed audiences with their Fire Garden installations since 1999. Animating a wide range of different settings across the UK, each blazing installation is site-specific – shaped by its surroundings or a particular theme. From fiery grottoes and a music stage ablaze at Festival Number 6 in Portmeirion to a procession of fire and a spectacular Viking ship on Barry Island promenade, the Fire Garden has also previously visited many more destinations, including Chatsworth House, Lost Eden at Kendal Calling, and Blackpool’s Heat the Streets.

Get wrapped up, head outdoors and experience something new.

A magical outdoor experience for all ages, this special event provides the perfect opportunity to get wrapped up, head outdoors and experience something new with family and friends.

The Fire Garden is taking place as part of the first-ever Corridor of Light cultural event. Running from 21 – 23 October, the free nightly event will see a fantastic collection of brand new visual arts commissions and installations popping up along the Oxford Road Corridor in Manchester city centre.
