Working with local talent as well as internationally renowned artists, Quays Culture’s work ranges from the intimate to the monumental, inspiring audiences to engage with the location in new and exciting ways.

Quays Culture presents two major events a year -Lightwaves in December and Quays Festival in the summer. Lightwaves is an annual festival that showcase’s inspiring digital light art; illuminating the public spaces for an unforgettable 10 days. Our previous events for the Quays Festival include a one-night only, exclusive outdoor performance, with the critically acclaimed, world-class dance circus production company, Motionhouse, and Unnatural Borders where endangered species from land and sea migrated to MediaCityUK in the form of four gigantic sculptures.
