aAh! rounds up the best things to do in Manchester this month.
‘PICTURE THIS’ ART EXHIBITION
‘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.
