Events at the Centre for New Writing

The Centre for New Writing organises the 'Literature Live' reading series, bringing the best known contemporary writers from all over the world to Manchester to discuss and read from their work.

In the past, we've hosted an impressive line-up of literary luminaries including Martin Amis, Colm Tóibín, Will Self, Sarah Waters, John Banville, Hilary Mantel, Neil Gaiman, Paul Muldoon, Rose Tremain and Hanif Kureishi.

Our spring 2017 events are now on sale. Tickets can be booked via Quaytickets or the Martin Harris Centre box office (+44 (0) 161 275 8951).
