The summer must go on! HOME is planning its re-opening which is set for Monday 17 May with bookings already being taken for their art, theatre and cinema events.

HOME will be showing Best Picture Oscar nominees, Minari, Sound of Metal, and Judas and the Black Messiah, as well as many more when it returns in May. Film fanatics book your tickets fast, these are movies that you simply can’t miss.

Mark Refugee Week by attending Horizons Festival 2021

Adopting the theme ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’ from the iconic Martin Luther King Jr speech, HOME presents Horizons Festival 2021 from Saturday 12 until Friday 18 June. In partnership with Community Arts North West, HOME has put together a festival that celebrates the creativity of people who now call Manchester their home. The festival will feature an array of diverse performances like North West Turkish Community Association Dance Group and Luma Trio – plus many, many more. Explore their full line-up via the link below.

Return to galleries to explore two free art exhibitions

HOME has two exciting new art exhibitions planned for its opening, and what’s more exciting is that they are both complexly free to explore. These exhibitions include Soul Journey to Truth by Lady Unchained (Brenda Birungi) where visitors can inspect the diverse art of women within the criminal justice system, and A Quilter’s Guide to The Lesbian Archive which explores queer history through an artistic lens. While they’re both free to view, visitors will be required to book a ticket before they visit. Learn more by following the link below.

Book a table at the HOME restaurant

Many of us have tried to recreate HOME’s undefeated cinema, restaurant and drinks combination from home, but let’s stop playing pretend. The HOME restaurant is vegan friendly, with a popular selection of vegan dishes to choose from. If you like your food with a kick you must try their cauliflower buffalo wings. For those of you with a sweeter tooth, we recommend the honey and soy chicken bao buns. Book your table by following the link below.
