Manchester Day artists’ workshops open to public for first time

The Manchester Day creative workshop opened to the public to give a behind the scenes sneak preview of the big day on Sunday June 17.

The Manchester Day WoW workshops have never been open to the public before the main event. So, this was a fantastic opportunity to see all the exciting structures, processional pieces and costumes being fabricated by artists and community groups.

Walk the Plank staff will be on hand to show visitors around the busy workshop which is based in Upper Campfield Market, Barton Street, Manchester M3 4NN.

Entrance to the workshop on Barton Street was free.

Cllr Pat Karney, Chair of Manchester Day, said:

“Workshops don’t get much more creative than Walk the Plank’s WoW Workshop. It is the engine that drives Manchester Day – where our inspirational volunteers meld with some of the best artists in the UK to create the spectacular artworks for the 17 June. This is your chance to get a rare glimpse of the magic behind the day.”

Maureen Lynch, Manchester Day producer said:

“We’re really excited about giving members of the public a sneak preview of the amazing creativity that goes on behind the scenes to make Manchester Day the incredible spectacle it has now become.”
