What’s on:

Sat 3 Nov, 3 – 4.30pm, £10 limited spaces
Walking Tour: Manchester Dark, Manchester Light

The walk will begin at Manchester Craft & Design Centre. Guests should meet here before 3pm to begin the walk.

Described as ‘Orlando meets Jekyll and Hyde’, The Night Brother is local writer Rosie Garland’s third novel. Rich are the delights of late nineteenth-century Manchester for young siblings Edie and Gnome. They bicker, banter, shout and scream their way through the city’s streets, embracing its charms and dangers. On this unique city centre walking tour, experienced tour guide Anne Beswick will guide you in their footsteps, while author Rosie Garland reads excerpts from the book.

Oak St Cafe will be offering cake and coffee/tea for £5 to walking tour ticket holders on the day.

Tickets available here.

Mon 22 to Sat 27 Oct, 12-5pm
The Science Studio

Workshops part of Manchester Science Festival, age 7+. FREE

The Science Studio is back this year as part of Manchester Science Festival. We will be offering daily family-friendly workshops between Monday 22 to 27 October, 12-5pm. In addition this year, on Tuesday 23 October we will be hosting an evening event between 6-8pm, 18+.

Roll up your sleeves, as it’s time to get crafty. Step into the studio and get up close and personal with the chemicals, reactions and elements artists use in their work. You’ll see some weird and wonderful processes in action as artists do everything from sculpture design to clay making and glass moulding. Plus, there’ll be a chance to put your creativity to the test and make your own masterpiece to take away. With a different theme every day, you’ll see just how inextricably intertwined science is with the artistic process. No prior experience necessary, just lots of enthusiasm and a big imagination.

Our workshops and event are free, no booking required.
