Tony Walsh’s ‘This is the Place’ Poem now available as charity single

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.

For just 99p you can purchase the track via iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.
