On 23rd May, thousands gathered in Albert Square for a vigil dedicated to those whose lives were lost in the Manchester Arena attack. As part of the tribute, poet Tony Walsh performed ‘Together (This is the Place)’, a poem that would turn into an iconic symbol of Manchester. Hundreds across the city created artwork, paintings and their own poetry – with some even getting tattoos inspired by the powerful words.

In collaboration with New Mount City Breakers, the poem is now being released as a classic Hacienda mix. All money raised will be donated to Forever Manchester, We Love Manchester Charity and the Mayor of Greater Manchester’s Homelessness Fund.
