Northern Art Carbooty 2018 at Sadler's Yard, City Centre 26 August 2018 Entrance is free

We can’t think of many finer ways to spend a Bank Holiday summer Sunday than pottering around Carbooty. Vying for the title of most fun pop-up arts event in the North it also has the contendor of one of the best mottos of all time “Seek and ye shall find wonderful things to open your mind!”

A traditional car boot fair turned on its head with local artists and makers at its heart, hunt down quality treasures and pieces at affordable prices. This art-sale, art-festival hybrid encompasses live art commissions, DJs, music and performance, family-friendly workshops and food stalls galore.

Anyway, back to the shopping.

There aren’t many (or any) places which bring together top notch local artistic talent, established cultural venues and pioneering community arts into one glorious wonderland.

We love that Ancoats’ over 60s art group the Many Hands Craft Collective gets equal billing with Manchester’s internationally renowned Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art.

More artists, food vendors and performers will be released each week on the Carbooty facebook page. You can definitely count us in.
