A staple of Manchester’s cultural and literary life, The Portico Library is situated above The Bank pub on Mosley Street. The 19th century library houses more than 25,000 books and is filled with archives covering 450 years. While The Portico is a subscription library, it works with diverse communities in the region to create events, exhibitions and learning programmes. It is also the home of The Portico Prize, established in 1985, a biennial award which accepts submissions across all literary formats and gives £10,000 to an overall winner.
