Cornerhouse is Manchester’s international centre for contemporary visual arts and independent film.

Cornerhouse was founded by the Greater Manchester Visual Arts Trust, chaired by Sir Bob Scott, and opened in 1985. We’ve been at the forefront of Manchester’s vibrant cultural scene ever since. Our patrons are Danny Boyle, Damien Hirst and Helen Mirren.

Located on Oxford Road, Cornerhouse houses three floors of contemporary art galleries, three screens showing the best of independent cinema, a bar, café and a bookshop and we get around 500,000 visitors every year.
