Our regular in-person workshops are suspended during lockdown, but you can still join our exciting programme of digital activities online. To find out more, visit the group We are Streetwise Opera on Facebook, follow our sessions on YouTube Live or email us.

We run free singing and creative workshops delivered weekly at The Booth Centre and Manchester Art Gallery. They are open to anyone who is currently homeless, vulnerably housed or has been affected by homelessness.

Find out why you might like to get involved and what to expect from the sessions.

Streetwise Opera has performed at The Lowry, The Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester Art Gallery, The Whitworth and other venues and events.

Both Manchester groups performed alongside The Sixteen in Streetwise Opera’s production The Passion at Campfield Market in 2016, to critical acclaim.
