Funzing – Queen: Behind Closed Doors
7PM/
£12

Who were the real Queen, away from the lights & the cameras? Did ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ tell the whole story? What made Freddie Mercury such a great frontman? Join us for an exclusive look into one of the greatest rock bands the world has ever seen, as told via a series of stories, anecdotes and unique candid photographs by former head of road crew, turned photographer Peter Hince.

Peter Hince first met Queen in 1973, when they were just a humble support act, and subsequently went to work for them full-time until their last tour (with Freddie) in 1986.

In this fascinating talk – via the medium of stories and unique photos taken from years of touring – Peter will take you onstage, backstage, inside the recording studio, providing a truly exceptional insight into how 4 totally different personalities became one of the biggest bands on the planet.
Peter encourages the audience to ask questions as the talk goes on, as well as a general Q & A session at the end. Ask the questions you never thought you’d get the chance to, about one of the worlds greatest ever bands.

PechaKucha Night Manchester
7PM/
£7-9

For our second PechaKucha Night of 2019, we thought we’d shake things up a bit and experiment with some city-to-city sharing! So we’ve invited 10 creatives from Liverpool to come over to Manchester to take on the PechaKucha challenge: to present on a topic using 20 images, with only 20 seconds per image. No stopping.

For this PechaKucha, we’re exploring the theme of ‘community’. We’ll hear from an eclectic mix of speakers from the worlds of service and graphic design, architecture, printmaking, zines, creative education and economic reform. So there will be lots to think and talk about!

We’re heading over to LEAF on Portland Street. As a business that grew out of Liverpool we could think of no better location to host our event.

We’ll also be running a letterpress workshop with Karen Edwards and a creative writing activity with Steve Clarkson from #FoundFiction.

MR BINGO

Bio

Mr Bingo was a commercial illustrator for 15 years, working regularly for clients such as The New Yorker, The Guardian, TIME, CH4, The Mighty Boosh & The New York Times. An archive of the thousands of illustrations from this period doesn’t exist online because he got bored once in a motorhome and deleted his entire portfolio website. You can see a small selection of work from this period here.

In 2015 he launched a Kickstarter to fund a book about his Hate Mailproject. The campaign featured a rap video and a diverse selection of rewards including being trolled, having your washing up done, going on a date in Wetherspoons, being told to fuck off on Christmas Day and getting shitfaced on a train.

He decided around this period to never work for clients ever again and focus on being some sort of artist which he’s done ever since.

Hett also maintains his own independent digital arts practice, and is currently one of the selected artists on FutureEverything’s cutting-edge FAULT LINES program. His work centres around a stubborn refusal to do as he’s told with technology, preferring to do the coding equivalent of painting with bold brush strokes on large canvases, leaving the boring bits to grumpy programmers who have to wear ties to work. Ask him about the RFID chip he had implanted into his hand that time.

Following multiple 5* reviews and a run at the Room Above in Bristol, ‘Into the Deep’ is coming to the Manchester Fringe. ‘Into the Deep’ follows the story of Thomas Lewin and his small family, as he attempts to balance the dreams of his children with the realities of their difficult life in rural Cornwall. Told through non-linear time frames, we see the tensions between the challenges of the present and the destruction and pain of the past unfold. The play seeks to raise questions of familial toxic masculinity, and the ties and struggles of male mental health, still so rarely discussed. It is a play about how far loyalty extends in a cold, unempathetic microcosm of the patriarchal and working-class family.

7 Stories: Real People. Real Experiences.
7pm/Basement
£10

7 Stories: an evening of stimulating tales. When was the last time you heard a truly great story? That made you listen, made you think,and made you feel?

We asked ourselves the same questions, and for that reason we’ve decided to organise a new event focusing on inspirational, truly amazing stories from seven Mancunians. Lyndon Nicholson, CEO, Buffalo 7 said: “The event is based on the principle that as human beings we love stories. Wrap any message you like in an engaging story and people will remember you, the story you told and the point behind it.

7 Stories is an evening of 7 everyday people telling their story. It’s not a sales pitch or a presentation. It’s simply people from all walks of life standing up and telling a room full of people a story for 15 minutes.” The exclusive event will feature six inspirational tales from everyday people, and one keynote speech from Dominic McGregor, Co-Founder & COO, Social Chain. Stories of success. Of hope. Of triumph through adversity. Stories of real local characters and their extraordinary lives. Stories that give Manchester its strength.

Paisley
7.30pm/Basement
£5-7

Paisley is a deeply personal piece of theatre focusing on culture and its development from a woman’s perspective. Set within such a intimate space as a bedroom, we will explore the societal problems set upon ourselves and the lingering scars left behind by our psyche. Be prepared to be taken beyond the realms of these four walls as we uncover a new perspective through the magic of storytelling.

We pride ourselves on making a platform for the equally strong but equally different female characters. An opportunity that we know unfortunately doesn’t happen as much as it should, so what a way to celebrate 100 years since women have been able to vote by seeing a play that depicts women’s progression throughout different cultures. What a privilege to perform an all-female play in the heart of Manchester where the Suffragettes were born.

Paisley is about women supporting each other through real-life issues that a makeover can’t fix.

The Science on Consciousness
7pm/
£12

Consciousness, as the platform for our experiences, is responsible for the most intimate and meaningful aspects of our existence. Philosophy has for centuries grappled with questions of consciousness, such as whether our minds are separate from our bodies, if our sense of subjectivity is a unique, unavoidable feature of consciousness, and, more recently, whether we are just a kind of computer. I will argue that such debates hardly ever moved us forward, but that the science of consciousness, which I research, is making rapid dramatic progress, and is starting to unlock perhaps the most important mystery remaining in biological science.

Manchester Modern: book launch
6pm/The Basement
free entry

Twenty years in the making, followed by a painstaking, exacting and at times frustrating design process..

…and Manchester Modern – a book celebrating the city’s modernist architecture – is finally about to be unveiled.

Join author Richard Brook with designer Vaseem Bhatti and publisher The Modernist Society to celebrate the launch of Manchester Modern.

The project had already been on ice for about 7 years as publishers laughed the pair out of their offices when they proposed a concrete cover – however The Modernist Society took up the challenge.

Masses of print proofs, photos, sketches and mock-ups will be on display to unfold every aspect of the production and design process. Even the music will have a concrete-theme, with the social following the Q&A featuring musique concrète, kindly provided by Conor Thomas of Boomkat.

free entry

With Welsh roots and soulful sounds, Dolly‘s music captivates, with haunting vocals and ambient tones. Her combination of folk, soul and acoustic guitar create an emotive and poetic soundscape with music reminiscent of Eva Cassidy, a mix of Florence Welch’s power house vocals, Lucy Rose’s soft dulcet tones, and Daughter’s haunting and poetic lyrics.

BRUNCH & BEATS: Anne Marie Sanderson
10am - 3pm (music 2pm)/
free entry

A laid-back brunch with the best Sunday beats.

Anne Marie Sanderson will be playing a free gig from 2pm onwards.

Anne-Marie Sanderson’s voice is evocative of birds in flight – soaring, gliding, swooping – and it finds its home among the tall trees of her deft guitar work. Describing Sanderson’s distinctive indie-folk music in these terms is apt; she is an artist who casts a careful eye and attentive ear to the natural environment, alternating between wide-eyed wonder and wry observation. As well as drawing from a host of musical influences, some of Sanderson’s songs pay homage to literary greats, and she is currently recording a collection of songs inspired by authors including Robert Macfarlane, Barbara Kingsolver, and Doris Lessing.
2017 sees her heading out on the road for a bevy of solo dates around the UK. A native of Cumbria, having recently returned from several years of performing her music in the States, Sanderson is currently based in Stratford upon Avon.

Brunch & Beats: Culture Dub Orchaestra
10am - 3pm (band 2pm)/
free entry

A laid-back brunch with the best Sunday beats.

Culture Dub Orchestra will be playing a free gig from 2pm onwards.

Condensed down from Culture Dub Orchestra, CDO Quartet looks at World Roots Dub through a new lens.  With dub still firmly at its core, this ensemble freely explores a range of cultures, backgrounds and musical styles.

CDO Quartet replaces the full band’s heavy roots drum/bass with a running tabla (Sunny Mohindra) and bass (Chris Cooper) section. Overlaying this, Guitar (Paul Wetton) and Violin (Hannah Lawson) dialog and converse, delivering a euphoric soundscape. Using a range of textures and delays, CDO Quartet take the mind on a spiritual and nomadic journey.

In fact, CDO Quartet are nomadic at heart.  Summer 2017 saw CDO Quartet embark on a pilgrimage to Berlin and Bordeaux – stopping off en route to play small venues, busk, move on, repeat.

6:30pm/
£45 adv (+booking)

In this workshop with ROSWOW you will learn how to make your very own woven wall hanging. Using the ROSWOW weaving kit, Jade will lead you through a step by step workshop to learn the basics of weaving on a small loom to create the pictured woven wall hanging.

As you create your wall hanging, the weaving techniques that you will learn include the plain weave, rya knots, soumak and twill. You will also be shown how to construct and warp the loom along with preparing the weave for hanging.

Weaving is a very relaxing craft to do, the repetitive act of weaving can create a very mindful and meditative experience, creating a sense of calm and restfulness in most people that try it. It’s also very pleasing watching the wall hanging come to life, row by row, creating a great sense of satisfaction when complete! Plus learning a new craft in a social environment is always the most fun way to do it!

The workshop includes:

– ROSWOW Weaving Kit

– Step by step guidance

– A selection of roving colours if orange is not your colour of choice!

The three-hour workshop will take place in a private area, with your favourite food and drinks available from the bar. What better way to get creative than with irresistible food and delectable drinks in an inspirational and relaxed atmosphere!
