Design City Fair
Design Manchester presents the Design City Fair: a celebration of creatives, makers and print in collaboration with G . F Smith, Manchester Print Fair and Hot Bed Press.
Now in our third year, we have relocated to the stunning surrounds of The London Road Fire Station, where we will host more than 100 creatives over two days, with affordable works for sale and a schedule of workshops including screenprinting, letterpressing, book-binding, frame-making and a special origami workshop.
During the day, live artworks will be created around this unique space and there are many opportunities to get involved: most workshops are completely free or require a small donation.
In the courtyard we will have music with local DJs alongside food and drink including a special festival beer with local brewery Alphabet.
This is a free family friendly event open to all, we’re grateful for all of the help from Allied London in their help making this event.
If you are interested in exhibiting/selling your work please contact Manchester Print Fair or Manchester Artists Book Fair
London Road Fire Station is a grade II-listed building which has been closed since the mid-1980s. It’s positioned at the gateway to Manchester, opposite Piccadilly Station, so it’s the first and the last building seen when you arrive or depart by train. It is simply one of the most significant projects in Manchester.
Now owned by developer Allied London, London Road is creating an exciting and important new destination in Manchester that is set to redefine a new doorway to the city.
