Manchester’s creative arts centre, HOME, has partnered with First Manchester to enable people across Greater Manchester to access the shared creative theatre and cinema space. In May 2015, HOME launched the Oglesby Inspire Scheme, which has helped provide low cost tickets to specific community groups and those who might not normally have the opportunity to visit the centre or take part in cultural events. With the help of the Inspire Scheme, HOME have been able to offer people access to cinema and theatre tickets for only £1. By providing 600 day tickets, the operator has provided community groups and volunteers the access to free travel to HOME on the day of their visit.
Head of Commercial at First Manchester, Ian Humphreys, said, ‘First Manchester is at the heart of local communities and we’re pleased to help provide connections especially for young people with such exciting and creative learning opportunities.’
