Home brings together two of Manchester's finest: Cornerhouse and The Library Theatre
Take two, well established cultural stalwarts, Cornerhouse and the Library Theatre, throw in around £25 million and mix well. Sound like a tasty treat? Well, when one of these organisations is renowned for its contemporary take on visual arts and its independent and foreign language cinema, and the other for Alan Ayckbourn revivals, it certainly bodes well.
The result is Home, a brand new arts centre for Manchester. On top of world-class facilities, two extra cinemas, expanded flexible galleries and two theatres, this new space has ambitious plans for its programme, too.

HOME is the perfect addition to Manchester's creative history across a number of artistic disciplines. Though at the expense of the much loved Cornerhouse, HOME is a welcome consolation prize. Under the roof of the built for purpose new building is a bar, restaurant, 5 cinemas, 2 theatres and art exhibition space. It's the perfect place to spend weekends and evenings with the consistently warm welcoming that you would expect of a place named HOME.
