Given the role Tony Walsh's 'This is the place' played at the vigil on 23rd May 2017, it feels very apt that HOME would commission a series of spoken word pieces to mark the anniversary of the Arena bombing. HOME worked with Monkeywood Theatre last year to, in their words:
Commission 19 astounding Mancunian writers to write 19 tiny but titanic new pieces that explore our city and its people.
Eve Steele was one of those people. This is her ode to the city centre.
One year on. We won’t forget. Our city stands strong. #McrTogether
