We are pleased to announce that size? is supporting United We Stream and the fantastic work they are doing to keep the community entertained, safe in their homes, as connected as possible and dancing through these testing times.
While Greater Manchester and the rest of the nation’s nightlife has been put on hold to help battle the spread of COVID-19, United We Stream is fighting back for the region’s pubs, clubs, bars, restaurants, theatres and venues by showcasing some of our country’s world-class cultural talent.
From live music, DJ-sets, virtual festivals, cookery shows and top-notch interviews, the initiative has something for everyone to enjoy while spending their time indoors to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Created by Night-Time Economy Adviser – and the man behind WHP – Sacha Lord, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, and local and national partners – all of United We Stream’s content is free for you to view, but greatly encourages you to donate.
All income goes straight into a relief fund to help support Greater Manchester’s bar’s, venues, performers, freelancers and cultural organisers and many more who are unable to work or operate their businesses due to virus. The money raised will also help to tackle the fight against homelessness in Greater Manchester, and support the vital work undertaken by music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins.
The streams take place live at 7pm every evening, showcasing some of the best talents Greater Manchester has to offer to audiences around the world.
Just pay what you feel and buy a virtual ticket and enjoy the first-class entertainment live from the safety of your own homes.
