What’s On

We have a packed programme of seasonal events and activities lined up, bringing Tony Wilson Place to life and creating a vibrant and lively place for the enjoyment of everyone living, working and visiting First Street.

So here’s just a taster of what we have planned. Check back often for updates!

To complement HOME’s annual celebration of film, theatre and visual art from across the Spanish-speaking world, we are excited to bring ¡VIVA! outside into Tony Wilson Place.   With special live performances of music and dance, and Spanish inspired food and drink pop ups, the FREE outdoor events will take place over three weekends.
