Other events on in Manchester

  • Andy Warhol exhibit – The Whitworth Art Gallery – Ends 16th April

Andy Warhol shows the sharp critical opinions of an artist known to many primarily as art salesman, purveyor of product and celebrant of capitalism. Supported by Arts Council, Art Fund and Creative Scotland, the exhibition is drawn from ARTIST ROOMS, a collection of international modern and contemporary art owned by National Galleries of Scotland and Tate on behalf of the public.

Focusing on themes of death, politics and identity it presents audiences with Warhol’s reading of the American Dream at a time when the country is under scrutiny following the 2016 US Presidential election. The Warhol exhibition has been based at the Whitworth since November and runs until 16th April so catch it before it’s too late!

  • Grease at the Palace Theatre – Ends 25th March

It’s the original high-school musical, featuring all the unforgettable songs from the hit movie including You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more.

It’s one of the biggest musicals around, so be quick to catch it in Manchester before 25th March!
