We’re delighted to be helping Whitworth Art Gallery launch its new Pub Crawl series of events – a free event featuring Honeyfeet.

The Whitworth Art Gallery may be closed, but our work continues. Join us as we launch four months of art, performance, workshops and courses – all held inside some of the city’s best-loved watering holes.

Where better to start a pub crawl than in a working brewery? This launch will give a flavour of what’s to come, with a special performance from Manchester’s finest ethio-trad, folk-hop band, Honeyfeet. Spoken word duo Les Malheureux will also be performing, with Coops DJing throughout the evening. Featuring curated projections from the Whitworth’s collection – plus a free beer on arrival – this event is not to be missed.

From life drawing at the Briton’s Protection to a live music knit hack at Big Hands, alongside monthly courses from the Workers’ Educational Association at The Anchor, this is the Whitworth’s Pub Crawl. Come have a drink with us.

Whitworth Art Gallery re-opens Autumn 2014.

This event is programmed in collaboration with Whitworth Art Gallery. Entry is free – just turn up on the night!

First Chop Brewing Arm is an industrial brewing unit situated in a railway arch off Trinity Way, a 10-minute walk from Deansgate. The brewery is fully licensed and will be offering a selection of its own ales on the night, as well as other refreshments.

Attend on: Facebook

All shows are 18+ unless otherwise stated.
