1. Hit show heads to HOME

Enjoy a euphoric night on the rock ‘n’ roll rollercoaster with singer Hedwig, a hedonistic genderqueer anti-heroine seemingly hellbent on destruction. Running from 27 April – 11 May at HOME, this darkly humorous self-love story, powered by a live band, epic rock-inspired music and hard-hitting lyrics, explores gender identity, acceptance and the freedom to be whoever you want to be.

2. Celebrate diversity in Bury with Pride

Bury will hold its annual Pride festival this year on Saturday 30 April. This celebration of equality and diversity will focus around a walking rainbow parade and family orientated activities and performances suitable for all ages. Whether you are taking part in the rainbow walking parade, coming along to the party or just supporting from the sidelines, the coming together of the Bury community to help break down barriers for the LBGTQ+ community will be a fantastic day of celebration in Bury.

3. Sounds from the Other City is back!

After a two-year absence, Sounds from the Other City returns to Salford’s Chapel Street on Sunday 1 May. Regarded by many as the ‘Christmas Day’ of the independent creative scene, the festival will be back to bring colour, imagination and the best in new music and art to the pubs, bars, squares, studios, warehouses and ‘everywhere in between’ spaces of Chapel Street, Salford. Tickets are available via the SFTOC website.

Both Manchester United and Manchester City Museum & Stadium Tours, offer a behind the scenes look at two of the world’s most iconic clubs.
