EVENT : September 21, 2019.
Heritage Open Day
10am – 5.30pm
Discover the fish-tory of our unique Victorian fish market building. The building is one of the last remaining examples from the time of the huge Smithfields Markets which opened in 1873 and traded for one hundred years. Since 1982 it’s been home to the fabulously creative Manchester Craft and Design Centre, where you can see our Resident Makers at work in their studios and discover handmade contemporary craft and design, as well as enjoying homemade cakes and quality teas and coffees in Oak St Café.
Come and share your memories of the building old and new, have a go at a heritage-themed quiz and find out more about volunteering with us to share our heritage with visitors. There’s also a fishy-themed under fives play area for those little ones to enjoy and relax in!
