HOME Manchester, 2 Tony Wilson Place, Manchester, M15 4FN – Visit Now

After around a year of national lockdown, HOME Manchester, the city’s leading multimedia and multi-purpose hub for the arts is reopening soon, with a few key changes to what we’ve been used to back in the pre-Covid days. The biggest announcement is of a huge new temporary outdoor venue, set to launch in May to provide a summer destination for people looking for low-risk enjoyment throughout summer as lockdown eases. This space will be based on First Street, just next to HOME, and will cater for lovers of theatre, food, drink, shows, music, cabaret, and comedy.

HOME is one of the city’s crown jewels when it comes to culture

More generally, HOME, Manchester’s £25m cross-arts venue, is one of the city’s crown jewels when it comes to culture. With no less than two theatres, five cinema screens, a large gallery, bar, cafe bar and bookshop, HOME Manchester is something of a destination venue in the city. Shaped like a wider, shinier version of its predecessor, Cornerhouse, and based down the road at the heart of a wide-open plaza, HOME may not be the biggest of venues, but its programme of art, theatre and film stands out as highly innovative, challenging and unique.

When the first few parts of HOME begin to reopen, it’s worth stating that HOME’s first floor café bar is highly recommended: with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, they do a mean line in pizzas, as well as classic mains, burgers and sandwiches, brunch, and Sunday roasts. It’s spacious yet cosy, with dark wooden tables, low slung lamps and a huge HOME sign, in case you forget you aren’t, in fact, at your own.
