Free G&Ts for mums this Mother’s Day at Manchester bar and arts venue HOME

Mums can enjoy a complimentary gin and tonic on the house at HOME in honour of Mother's Day 2023

Apparently, more than a third of British mums consider gin and tonics their favourite spirit mixer. As such, it seems only fitting that a bar in Manchester is going to be handing them out for free this Mothering Sunday.

In celebration of Manc mums and everything they do, Manchester bar and arts venue HOME will be giving out complimentary goblets of Agnes Arber Gin and Marlish English Tonic Water on 19 March.

The hub of contemporary theatre, film, art and music has partnered with the award-winning distillers to offer all visiting mothers a glass of the good stuff for one day only.

To enjoy a drink on the house, all mums need to do is turn up and ask – although it is advised they don’t leave it too late, as drinks will be poured on a first-come, first-served basis.

Located on First Street, HOME is known for hosting cool events and pop-ups throughout the year as well as running interesting exhibitions and screening some of the world’s best contemporary and independent films.


With five cinemas, two theatres, and 500 square meters of gallery space, it is one of the few arts organisations to commission, produce and present work across film, theatre and visual art – and it’s right here on our doorstep.

This Mothering Sunday in Manchester, culture fans will find five very different art exhibits on display from artists such as solo filmmaker Chris Paul Daniels, whose work explores the theme of identity through clips of cultural traditions, procession and ceremony.

Elsewhere, you’ll find a mixture of new films, prints, photographs, painting and sculptural works from artist Nick Jordan; a brand-new solo exhibition exploring the impact of gentrification and the lack of affordable housing in our city from Tara Collette; and an immersive installation from Parham Ghalamdar bringing together new paintings in oil, ceramics and animation.

Cinema fans, meanwhile, can pick from a raft of different film screenings including Llenos de gracia, the story of a rebellious nun who arrives at a boarding school to take charge of an unruly bunch of orphan boys and changes lives with a make-shift football team.
