Design City Fair at London Road Fire Station, Manchester 15 — 16 October 2016 Entrance is free

The Design City Fair is a celebration of creatives, makers and print in collaboration with G. F Smith, Manchester Print Fair and Hot Bed Press.

Now in its third year, it has relocated to the stunning surrounds of The London Road Fire Station, and 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 will be many opportunities to get involved: most workshops are completely free or require a small donation.

In the courtyard there will be music with local DJs alongside food and drink including a special festival beer with local brewery Alphabet.
