The HOME walking tour with Jonathan Schofield

Advance tickets for this tour have now sold out, however limited tickets will be available on the day.

The tour with Johnathan Schofield starts and finishes in HOME taking in grand buildings, fabulous stories and those ancestors of HOME, Cornerhouse and Central Library.

The theme is ‘creativity unwrapped’ so expect tales of artists, architects, authors, musicians and even comedians. Poems will be quoted and recorded music played.

You will see some of the most beautiful structures in Manchester but also the single ugliest and sinister building in the city centre. The narrative is guaranteed to be lively and there’ll never be a dull moment when Jonathan takes you on tour.
