Festival in My House

Festival in My House offers Manchester residents the chance to present their very own micro-international festival in their own home. It’s that simple: come up with the idea, and we’ll help you make it happen.

The current round for applications is closed but watch this space as new opportunities emerge.

In July 2017 BBC Radio 4 presented My House, a documentary on the Festival in My House series, produced by Nija Dalal-Small & Geoff Bird. Listen to the programme here.

We’re looking for:

  • Ideas with big ambition – but on an intimate scale
  • Ideas that embrace the adventurous spirit of MIF
  • Ideas with an international angle, large or small
  • Ideas that will leave a lasting impression on everyone who takes part

Music or dance, drama or art: there’s really no limit except the scope of your imagination!

Use this page to explore the festivals we’ve presented so far. Sign up to My Festival to get updates about future opportunities to get involved.

If you have any questions about this programme please email rizwan.iqbal@mif.co.uk.

Festival in My House is part of My Festival, supported by the Baring Foundation, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
