A long, long, time ago, the government commissioned intrepid explorer, Philias Finder, to start The Ministry of Lost & Found – a secret department tasked with protecting the most curious and precious objects ever lost or found.
To celebrate their 123rd anniversary, The Ministry would like to invite you to join in the first-ever lost and found expedition. Should you wish to accept it, your mission is to unlock the secrets of the most classified department in history.
The Ministry of Lost & Found is a family-friendly afternoon of fun, laughter and exploration taking place in Manchester’s Central Library. Families are invited to join the celebration by picking up a map from the Lost and Found office before starting out on their trek around the vast and beautiful interior of the iconic building.
The mysterious staff from The Ministry will guide the way as you discover the teeniest insects on earth in the performance space, find your house on a giant map in the archives and play hide and seek in the reading room.
Look out for the peculiar and magical characters – Leo Lost, from a long line of losers, Frankie Found, from a fabulous finder family, and help Mr Quaver to find his musical mojo. There will also be juggling, hula-hooping and dressing up alongside a special treasure hunt, creative make and do and a storytime session.
Set in Manchester’s imposing Grade II listed Central Library, The Ministry of Lost and Found promises to be a really special day out for all of the family. All you need to do is remember your picnic!
