On 15 June 1996, a bomb left on Corporation Street in Manchester devastated the city centre. This traumatic event proved to be a pivotal moment in the history and regeneration of Manchester. Over the last 20 years, scholars, creative writers and the people of Manchester have explored the significance of the incident for the city. In this one-off event, a panel of writers, performers and academics will offer short reflections on the cultural legacy of the bomb culminating in a group discussion and personal responses of the audience. Come and share your memories of that day and your thoughts on Manchester’s development in the last two decades.
