Coronavirus update: HOME temporary closure

Updated 3 Apr 2020

Following the latest advice, we can confirm that HOME will be closed until the end of June.

If you have booked a ticket or are due to attend an event at HOME, our team will be contacting you over the next few days. As our building is completely closed, our box office lines are now shut – please don’t worry if you can’t get through to us, our team will contact you.

We have been overwhelmed by the love and support we’ve received since announcing our temporary closure due to the coronavirus update. Customers will be entitled to a refund – but we ask you to consider donating the cost of your ticket instead. HOME is a charity (no. 514719) and your support has never been more important. If you are happy for us to keep the ticket as a donation, please email us at boxofficeteam@homemcr.org. And please do add Gift Aid if you can – this means we can claim 25% more, without any additional cost to you. Otherwise a member of our team will be in touch.

This is a difficult time, and we appreciate everyone who has asked how they can help. We’d like to thank our audiences in advance for their patience during this unprecedented situation.

We’ll be keeping our audiences updated via our website and social media channels as to when we will reopen, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

If you have any general questions or concerns please email info@homemcr.org and we’ll endeavour to respond as soon as we can.


A message from Dave Moutrey, Director & CEO, HOME:

During this period, it is critical that we continue to support our staff, artists and creative partners. We will be working closely with our peers across the city and indeed the country, and we are determined that Manchester’s incredible culture will emerge from this challenge stronger and more vibrant than ever.

This is a difficult time, and we appreciate everyone who has asked how they can help. If you are receiving a refund due to cancellation of a show, please consider being one of the many people who have turned this refund into a donation, if you can afford to do so. And please do add Gift Aid if you can – this means we can claim 25% more, without any additional cost to you. If you would like to make a one-off donation, you can do so via our Response Fund here: https://homemcr.org/about/support/donations/
