Poet and novelist Jackie Kay will be performing at the launch of Salford Libraries Live on Thursday 12 October.
Salford Libraries Live is an ambitious arts programme offering high quality events, performances and activities. The initiative will be at Eccles, Pendleton, Swinton and Walkden Library, Gateway Centres and at Salford Museum & Art Gallery.
Jackie Kay, Scottish Makar and Chancellor of the University of Salford, will be opening the event. The event will also feature ‘Dear Library’, a partnership between the University of Salford and Salford Community Libraries. They will be celebrating libraries and the role they play in our lives.
There will be live music from MAPAS (Salford Music and Performing Arts Service) and a Murder Mystery performance for you to solve from ‘Highly Suspect’.
Running from 5pm until 7.30pm, the event will have wine and light refreshments being provided.
