Contact In the City during refurbishment

David Upton

This month sees Manchester’s Contact theatre begin a £6.75 million transformation of its building on Oxford Road, expanding and refurbishing to create more opportunities for communities across the region.

While its home is transformed, Queer Contact Festival 2018 joins Contact’s In the City programme at venues across Greater Manchester for four weeks of live performances (27 January to 25 February) and three months of exhibition days (4 February to 15 April) celebrating LGBT+ arts and culture, and marking the festival’s 10th anniversary.
