The City Talking
This is our first A-Z issue in Manchester; it’s a chance to fill our pages with as many stories, hopes, dreams and memories as we can. Every year we speak to friends, acquaintances and strangers who we hope will become friends.
The A-Z issue always begins with a question, and this year in Manchester there were two. We wanted to know what people in Manchester had enjoyed this past year — the events, individuals and moments that made their 2015 great. We also wanted to know what they were excited about — what 2016 had promised them. We asked everyone from baristas, writers and artists to CEOs and leaders of the city’s tech community. We hope to ask even more of you next year.
Hope Mill Theatre
My favourite memory of 2015 was getting engaged!
I’m looking forward to the first musical production at the brand new Hope Mill Theatre in Ancoats. The show is Parade and it is set to be incredible! Playing from the 13th of May until the 5th of June it is going to be the show to see this summer in Manchester.
The Greater Manchester Fringe
What turned out to be a really bonkers trip to Disma Land.
The Greater Manchester Fringe, and all of Spandau Ballet coming round for a sleepover (this year, it WILL happen).
