Inspired by our long-running Festival in My House series, we invited Manchester artists to create and present their own micro-international festivals in their homes – and then stream them for us and you online, live and for free.

Chanje Kunda was set to tour her new show Plant Fetish when the COVID-19 lockdown hit.
