Local poet Tony Walsh yesterday (May 23) performed at a vigil in Manchester city centre after a bomb attack claimed the lives of 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert.

The performance artist recited his poem “This Is The Place” to a packed crowd.


Lines such as “there’s (are) hard times again in these streets of our city, but we won’t take defeat and we don’t want your pity,” and “this is the place where we stand strong together with a smile on our face, Mancunians forever,” rang particularly true and garnered applause from spectators after Sunday’s events.
