We Are Manchester - A Tribute to Manchester Arena

20 May 2015

Manchester poet Tony Walsh - aka Longfella - has penned a brilliant tribute to Manchester Arena to mark 20 years of bringing the biggest names from the world of live entertainment to the city.

We feel that Tony’s poem encapsulates everything that the Arena, and Manchester, stands for and we’re particularly proud to have worked with such a talented local artist on our anniversary tribute.

Let us know what you think of the tribute and share your memories of Manchester Arena with us on Twitter and Facebook #WeAreManchester.
