About us


Welcome to HOME

Formed by the merger of two of Manchester’s best-loved arts organisations, Cornerhouse and the Library Theatre Company, HOME is a place for curiosity seekers, for lovers of the dramatic, the digital and the deeply engaging; for radicals and reciprocators.

Our two theatre spaces are a platform for playful, daring, new and commissioned work. Our five screens light up with independent, challenging, provocative film. The gallery is home to the very best in contemporary art. The restaurant offers a varied and delicious menu of food and drink.

That’s the experience, but what’s in the frame? The world, seen through Mancunian eyes. Questions of our time. Ambitious and adventurous exploration of issues, emotions and destinations.

HOME is for all. Our audiences are widely drawn from the
 local community, visitors, young people, and of course, the loyal followers of our two founding organisations.

HOME is more than stage and screen. We are a centre for co-production, artistic creation and, of course, sharing. We are dedicated to learning, for people of all ages. A place for new work and playful ideas; of festivals and commissions; of artists and of audience engagement.
