The night of 22 May 2017 will be forever etched into the nation’s soul as an unthinkable tragedy. Manchester was witness to an act of unimaginable terror and the loss of life – and the lives forever changed by that act – was catastrophic.

The following evening, thousands gathered in the city’s Albert Square. Tony Walsh’s delivery of his poem This is the Place to the assembled crowd is now the stuff of legend - his defiance, his pride, his love for his city and its people at once unifying and utterly moving.

That poem (wonderfully described by Liam Gallagher as “the best thing I’ve ever heard come out of any Mancunian’s mouth, ever”)  is now the centrepiece of This Is the Place - Choose Love Manchester, to be published in September in full support of three charities - Forever Manchester, We Love MCR Emergency Fund and The Greater Manchester Mayors Homelessness Fund. The product of Manchester’s extraordinary creative community, the proceeds from the book will, in the words of the organisers, ‘hope to raise money from the book for those worst affected by the darkness of that day and to help fund brighter futures for young people, the homeless community of Greater Manchester and strengthen communities and enrich local life by inspiring local people to do extraordinary things together.’

All monies generated by its publication will go straight to these charities, an act of some hope in the darkness. In the words of Tony Walsh: ‘Because Manchester gives us such strength from the fact/That this is the place. We should give something back.”

“Well intentioned but misses the mark.”

I know it is going to be controversial not to like this book, but this is Manchester and we don't just say what we are supposed to. If you don't agree with me, that's fine. However I have read through... More
