Town of Culture

Bury Town of Culture 

Bury the home to many great icons – Danny Boyle, Elbow and of course the great Victoria Wood so there was no wonder the town was chosen as the first Greater Manchester Town of Culture. The accolade was awarded in 2020 but due to the pandemic it was celebrated in 2021.

So in 2021, Bury was officially the Greater Manchester Town of Culture. As part of its status there was be a special programme of events (COVID permitting) that took place throughout the year to inspire creativity and encourage local people to take part in cultural events including festivals, family days out, concerts, exhibitions, workshops and local heritage.

Central to the programme of events was Happy – an arts programme with a festival at its heart. Happy was inspired by the legacy of Bury-born Victoria Wood, her work and how she made audiences feel when she performed. Happy was all about people being able to experience for themselves the kind of work Victoria made including comedy writing, stand up, songwriting, performance and musical virtuosity. Above all Happy aims to make people laugh!
