Manchester International Festival (MIF) is the world's first festival of original, new work and special events. The Festival is staged every two years in Manchester, UK - the next edition will take place from 29 June to 16 July 2017 at venues all over the city.
In the run-up to MIF17, the Manchester International Festival (MIF) is running a project called "Festival in My House", inviting and producing ordinary people's ideas for tiny arts festivals, to be held in their own homes. Festival In My House brings the arts and MIF into in local communities around Manchester.
In this programme, Nija Dalal-Small, who held one of these 'tiny festivals' in her own Levenshulme home, visits some of the others - including ones hosting a Parisian post-punk band, a spoken word celebration and a classical music event - as well as attending a festival in a residential home... Nija speaks with the artists and guests as they experience the arts in this unique, intimate way.
