Festival In My House

Festival in My House invites Manchester and Greater Manchester residents to host their own micro-international festival in their local area. We’ve helped people present everything from slam poetry to classical music in homes and neighbourhoods across Manchester. You can take a look at our previous editions on the left.


In April, the COVID-19 lockdown sent the strand online. The first streaming-only series of Festival in My House… And Yours saw voguing parties, poetry performances and disco cookouts beamed directly from artists’ homes to audiences’ screens – you can catch up with them all here. 


Festival in My House…And Yours is now returning for another all-digital, lockdown-friendly series. MIF’s community panel is now on the lookout for Greater Manchester artists to develop new ideas for the strand, which will be bigger and more ambitious than ever. Find out more and apply here. The closing date is 8 October 2020.
