Head over to Hulme for a free community arts festival on Saturday 19 July, 12pm – 6pm! Lots of fun creative stuff to do all over Hulme Park, the community garden centre and more…
“The day kicks off at noon in Hulme Park with The Flying Machine, an interactive family performance from Handmade Theatre where the audience become the crew of a life-sized flying machine. While you’re there visit Slung Low’s The Knowledge Emporium (an old-fashioned sweetshop in a converted 1960’s airstream caravan) who’ll exchange your stories for sweets! They’ll be activities in the park throughout the day as well as musical performances.
Old Birley Street will be a hive of activity with food, music and table-top sales. Venture Arts will tag team with Z-arts and host creative family workshops throughout the day. Amongst the bees and flowers of Hulme’s beautiful Community Garden Centre will be live music, delicious food from Teatime Collective, pop up Garden Tea Room with cakes from Black Cat Cakery, refreshments from Moss Cider Project, local green organisations and crafts on display throughout the gardens.
