Get It Done: The Greenhouse at Fairfield Social Club

Get It Done: The Greenhouse at GRUB Manchester, Manchester 11 December 2018 Tickets from £4.5 — Book now

Following on from the success of their ‘Press Pause and Try Again Later’ festival at Antwerp Mansion in October, arts collective and social enterprise Get It Done are back with another jam-packed event, which includes some great local DJ’s. Taking place at the much larger Fairfield Social Club (just around the corner from Piccadilly station), their upcoming event, entitled Get It Done Presents: The Greenhouse, is in aid of Manchester Central Foodbank.

The idea for The Greenhouse was sparked after the Get It Done team read a particularly horrifying UK news article about a poverty stricken eight-year-old boy. In order to eat, this boy was stealing tomato sauce sachets from his school canteen, which he used to make soup. The team wanted to do something to help people in his position. 100% of the money raised from ticket sales, therefore, is going towards supplying emergency food packages for families this Christmas via Manchester Central Foodbank. What’s more, there will be a member from the charity there to help to raise awareness of the importance of such institutions in our increasingly unequal society.

The eclectic event has been programmed much like the last. Expect the opportunity to create, learn and dance in a variety of creative arts workshops led by local practitioners, as well as an exciting array of talks from local change makers. You can have a go at linocut printing your own t-shirt or tote bags with sustainable clothing store Total Betty, or try your hand at decorating an urban graffiti space at the stencil making workshop. When your creative juices have dried up, you can settle down for some education on some simple ways we can make positive changes. Open Kitchen MCR will be showing you how to tackle food waste in your everyday life and social enterprise Cracking Good Food will be there to teach you a thing or two about living sustainably and lovingly.

The culmination of the evening will be a good old fashioned boogie with the soundtrack provided by an eclectic range of DJs. These include Leeds-based DJ Natalia, old friends of Get It Done: Modern Logic, and MCR Live residents: Muziki Sessions. They’ll be spinning a mix of techno, disco and funk from all over the world and will keep you dancing throughout the night.

You can either head down for the whole evening or just come for the party – either way get yourselves down, learn something new and support a great cause.
