Trips & Adventures – 13 June 2019
Unfortunately, the rain stopped our visit to Fletcher Moss Park and Botanical Gardens, but we had a Plan B!
We caught the bus from Piccadilly to Manchester’s LGBT+ centre, a thriving youth and community centre, based on Sidney Street in the heart of the city. It was the first fully publicly funded ‘gay centre’ built in Europe. It’s over 30 years since it opened, and we enjoyed fresh and affordable veggie food made from scratch, in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
It’s only a two minute walk to the Manchester School of Art where the degree show “Everything Starts from Something” exhibited work by over 1,000 graduates in a range of disciplines including architecture, art, design and media.
We had a great time especially in the interactive room. There was so much to see, but we had a break in the Salutation Pub next door.
