0 148

aAh! rounds up the best things to do in Manchester this month.


‘Picture This’ at The Lowry will feature six popular children’s books that have a strong visual identity on page and have also been vividly brought to life on stage. This free to enter exhibition will showcase illustrations and artworks from the books alongside props, costumes and posters from stage productions.


Coming exclusively to Manchester, ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ is being performed at the Opera House. It’s a musical spin on the 1993 comedy film, entertaining us with a hilarious yet heartfelt story. Running for just four weeks, you’ll need to get your tickets quickly for this hit of nostalgia.


Find out more about the life and times of beloved artist and campaigner, Patti Mayor. Gallery Oldham’s exhibition will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Mayor’s birth with a stunning showcase of her popular works featuring working class subjects.


Celebrating the work of Manchester School of Art’s talented postgraduate students. Art, Design, Media, Fashion and Performance students will be displaying their work in a series of exhibitions across Holden Gallery, SODA and Benzie Buildings at Manchester Met.


The most iconic event in your uni calendar. Hosted at the Union over two days, this is your chance to grab as many freebies as your heart desires, connect with clubs and societies, and grab yourself a free slice of Domino’s pizza. It’s the perfect opportunity to settle in and meet new people.


Get your face painted with the flag of your nationality ready for the live performances and a fantastic Ceilidh band, followed by a DJ playing a range of music genres from around the world. Celebrate in style with a selection of international cocktails.
