Couples, families and art lovers alike spent their Valentine’s Day differently to the usual hearts and flowers on Saturday when they queued up to be among the first to see the newly refurbished Whitworth Art Gallery.
The overcast weather didn’t dampen spirits at the grand reopening of the historical building by Whitworth Park in Moss Side.
A new open space complete with pretty flowers and shrubs spruced up the outside of the building whilst a slick interior follows suit with lots of open space and modest colour scheme so as not to draw attention from the beautiful art on show.
The Whitworth will be open to the public every day 10am until 5pm with late night opening on Thursdays until 9pm. Entry is free.
