Following on from our successful trip to Newcastle and the North East in 2013 and Leeds and Yorkshire in 2014, we are proposing a weekend trip to Manchester in the North West of England.
Manchester has enjoyed a considerable cultural renaissance in recent years with many new exhibition spaces opening up and major redevelopments. The Whitworth reopened earlier this year to much critical acclaim and is a finalist in the Artfund Museum of the Year – the winner will be announced on the 1 July.
HOME also opened its door recently. This is a merger between Cornerhouse and the Library Theatre Company in a new venue including two new theatres, five cinema screens and a gallery space showcasing the best in contemporary art.
Other spaces include artist-run OBJECT / A, the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, The Lowry in Salford, Manchester Art Gallery, Castlefield Gallery, The International 3 and many more.
