Here at Yolklore, you might have already sussed, but we love a good chin wag and this Sunday we have just the thing: Instacake, a gathering founded by Social Media Coach Katya Willems, is for people who love Instagram and want to learn more tips and tricks for the grid.
Meeting at the hidden away Rapha cafe just off St Ann’s Square at 10am, you’ll start the day with cake (of course), discuss the best ways to make the most of the gram, so you can showcase the best of your work, before heading off on a photo walk, capturing some Insta worthy moments.
Katya’s indispensable expertise will help you elevate your feed and guide you through the steps of building an authentic and engaged following so you can communicate the story behind your brand.

For the theatre goers and culture vultures out there, book your tickets to the HOME production of The Maids.
Part of their new Autumn Winter Theatre Season, the play, based upon the true crime story of the murderous Papin sisters, paints a deadly game of ritual, role-play and rubber gloves, following the lives of the sisters and their life in a grand house in a French city.
Staying with the theme of radical, HOME is making history by ripping our the seats in their theatre space and building a brand-new in-the-round auditorium, for a truly immersive experience.
The Friday preview night will also include a Q&A chaired by Dr Jason Hartford, Lecturer in French Studies at the University of Manchester.
