From Moss Side to Marseille: Life Drawing at National Football Museum, Manchester 11 March — 13 April 2023 Tickets from £12.00 — Book now

The National Football Museum is encouraging people to put pencil to paper rather than penalty to pitch with life drawing. Take inspiration from From Moss Side to Marseille, and put your artistic skills to the test with a relaxed drink and draw night at the museum.

Their Pitch Gallery will play host to a football-themed life drawing session like no other, run by community craft group Hunion. You’ll explore the Score Gallery exhibition, grab a cup and a canvas, then produce your very own masterpieces, drawing from poses based on iconic football celebrations.

Ticket price includes entry to the event and all related art materials used as part of the session. Please note that this activity is for over-18s only.
