Grab Your Coat, You've Pulled | Manchester | March 2019

You would be forgiven for thinking we had skipped through spring and arrived early into the warm embrace of summer with February’s unexpected heatwave (I use this term lightly) hitting the UK this past week.

But such is the bipolar nature of British weather, no sooner had hardy Mancunians reached for their shorts and applied the factor 50, then the all so familiar rain clouds gathered, providing us with a much-needed reality check; it’s only March you fools!

As we look to International Women’s Day and World Book Day next week, this month’s pickings are especially empowering and though-provoking, and of course, our monthly round-up wouldn’t be complete without some of the best foodie events taking place across the city.

Yolklore’s monthly round-up is curated to provide you with a comprehensive guide of the best things to see, do, and experience in and around the city. We strive to give you an original events guide and transport you away from the every day.

Loved&Lost Project Exhibition

Loved&Lost is a documentary project by Manchester based artist Simon Bray that invites participants to explore and unpack their experience of loss through imagery.

Choosing a photograph of themselves with their lost loved one, Simon returns with them to the location of the original photograph and replicates the image.

A project with purpose, Loved&Lost provides a platform to allow others to acknowledge and process their loss, celebrating the person they love and to show that grief does not define who they are.

The opening night of the project takes place at Manchester Cathedral on the 5th March from 6.30pm.
