Top 5 Manchester Events That You Shouldn’t Give a Miss in this July

Manchester International Festival is definitely a big hit in this month, along with the pizza-inspired art, site-specific theatre, a ten storey light sculpture, a Trainspotting-themed cinema party and a wide array of exclusive standout events.

Greater Manchester Fringe Festival

From the big names like Phill Jupitus, who will bring his alter ego Porky the Poet to the King’s Arms, and well-reviewed productions such as Faulty Towers, The Dining Experience, through to The Skinny Spotlight, Greater Manchester Fringe Festival will bring the pretty starry. You will even like the sound of tragicomedy All our Friends are Dead, confessional diary readings in Oh Dear Diary and the amazing Edinburgh Fringe success Women Who Wank. So you will keep an eye out for the pop-up Tim Peaks Diner, a coffee shop and music venue; that let you take over Albert Square Chop House for two nights only.

Ravenous Apparitions

New-York based on a mixed media artist Andrew Salomone presents a pizza being inspired installation and exhibition at Ply, with the preview and animation workshop (Salomone has been flying over specially) in order to offer a perfect blend. There will be an availability of complimentary cocktails at the launch event, too. (Ravenous Apparitions, exhibition will commence on 10th July to 30th August)

Show Me the Money: The Image of Finance, 1700 to the Present

Well, it’s not the sexiest of titles, but the People’s History Museum’s next exhibition will look quite fascinating that is second to none. It sets to map out how the financial world has been imagined in art, including the paintings, prints, photography, video and many more. Well done, this can be an absorbing insight to how art has even reflected and forged the relationship with money and the market over the last three centuries.

The Shrine of Everyday Things

This impressive, interactive experience from The Shrine of Everyday Things will take place in a complete lining of houses being condemned by the demolition; while exploring how we live and who we are; ‘think Coronation Street meets David Lynch’, actually. It will sound mad and pretty fantastic. (The Shrine of Everyday Things, off-site location, from 22 to 25 July)

Cloudspotting Festival

Being a fun-filled weekend retreat for the summer holidays, family music and arts festival Cloudspotting will return to Gisburn Forest this July, as it has been bringing Jane Weaver, Dutch Uncles, The Wave Pictures, The Earlies, the excellent This is the Kit, Honeyfeet and Rozi Plan with it. (Cloudspotting Festival will come at Stephen Park, Gisburn Forest, from 24 to 26 July)
