What’s on in July

Weird, wonderful and forever wild at heart – the iconic David Lynch takes over the HOME building this month and throughout the summer. Our gallery, theatres and cinemas are inhabited with the Lynchian spirit for Manchester International Festival and beyond, from films and music through to the first major exhibition of Lynch’s visual art, My Head is Disconnected. Browse the full line-up here.

On our stages this month we host Liz Richardson’s emotive new play SWIM, exploring the power of open water swimming. Catch it at HOME first before it heads off to Edinburgh. On our Theatre 1 stage is One Night in Miami…, an imagined account of a fabled real-life event when Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Jim Brown and Sam Cooke shared a hotel room.

Our major film season for the summer Sound & Vision: Pop Stars on Film celebrates the many way popular music figures have made forays into acting, from Prince’s Purple Rain to Tupac Shakur’s Juice.
