Grab Your Coat, You've Pulled | Manchester 12th - 19th January

The hangover of jam-packed Christmas calendars means that for most of us there’s no better time to pull the shutters down than January. 

There’s an air of quiet of the streets and it feels like we're all taking comfort in the thought of staying in-in.

Therefore this week GYCYP is giving a big nod to the creature comforts of home-based experiences as well as presenting you with a smorgasbord of events, talks and exhibitions happening across Manchester.

Curated and compiled just for you by the girls and boys at Yolklore
Magazine 'Grab Your Coat, You've Pulled' is a new window into
Manchester's best experiences.

Yolklore’s weekly 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.

Make like Mary Berry…

Take a leaf out of Rukmini Iyer’s book The Roasting Tin: Simple One Dish Dinner’s and reclaim the joy of home baking.

Afford yourself the ultimate luxury of time and headspace whilst whipping up these peachy apricots - the perfect filling for a crumble or baked with a dash of brown sugar and served with crème fraîche.

Smug points - 10/10

We’ll be round at yours for seven.

Potentially the best time of year for a movie night, we think it might be the time for some good old-fashioned fun.

From Stan and Ollie, to The Favourite, to Mary Poppins Returns, there is a stellar line-up of period pieces in cinemas right now, and with Greater Manchester’s plethora of picture houses, from The Savoy in Heaton Moor, to HOME on Oxford Road, to the newly-opened luxury cinema group Everyman in Altrincham, it would be right to say we’re spoiled for choice.

If you have absolutely no intention of leaving the comfort of your own sofa this weekend, then Netflix’s Maniac, a limited ten-part series following two strangers as they embark on a mysterious pharmaceutical trial and the subsequent fallout will have you hooked.

Housed in the courtyard of a former cotton warehouse, Ancoats Coffee’s beautiful exposed brick walls and exquisite glass ceiling makes it the perfect spot for a brew and for watching the world go by.

We’re excited to see that this Wednesday they’ll be holding a Colombian-inspired street food supper club, bringing heat and warmth to the heart of Ancoats.

From servings of delicious and creamy corn soup from Bogota, to charred avocado, chimichurri and Bunuelos Colombianos - light and crispy dough balls with cinnamon dusting and chilli-infused salted caramel chocolate sauce, we think this supper club is just what the doctor ordered.

The UK suffragette movement was born in Manchester in 1903 and led by the hero that is Emmeline Pankhurst.
