Read a transcript of our conversation with Leo Fitzmaurice.

Find out more about the advertising-drenched world of Leo Fitzmaurice. Here, the artist talks in detail about his latest site-specific, Pop art-bright artwork, Panoramia, now on show at The Lowry.  In this video, Fitzmaurice talks to Elisa Oliver, Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Leeds University, about the link between his previous work, and his interest in everyday advertising, brochures and branded goods, and the new installation at The Lowry. For a different look at the artist’s work, go behind the scenes at The Lowry with our installation photographs and interview with the artist here.

Culture Guides

Theatre

With a diverse offering of shows, we’ve got the guide to Manchester and the North’s festive theatre scene all wrapped up.

Music

Manchester’s concert halls and former Wesleyan chapels serve up folky treats in the form of Lau, Jesca Hoop, The Unthanks and more over the coming months. We also explore all things classical from Manchester Camerata and the BBC Philharmonic – and start looking ahead to next year’s festival season.

Cinema

Featuring animation, fairy tales and festive cheer. Cosy up with some first-class cinema this winter.

Exhibitions

Experience a ‘sublime’ encounter with ‘future archaeology’ and the ancient craft of pottery through Greek mythology and sound – all part of this month’s exhibition highlights.

Families

Adventure and light are where it’s at. Chester Zoo is transformed into a magical sorting office, there’s detective heaven at the Secret Seven and we preview some alternative things to do and see this winter holiday.

Tales of Whatever performer Harriet Dyer.

Literature

There’s splendid spoken wordage a-go-go this festive season: award-winning writers, real-life storytelling, book-buying opportunities and plenty of fun.
