Sunday Winter Warmer

Come in from the cold to our Winter Warmer – a special Sunday afternoon opening for all to have fun, and families to have some together time. We’ll have winter themed crafts, storytelling, face painting, music performances from Artful Playground, nice treats, discounted cafe drinks, plus advice from some fantastic organisations like British Red Cross and Citizens Advice Bureau, helping Manchester people with the cost-of-living crisis. See our fabulous activity schedule below for more detail!

All welcome – suitable for families.

Free – if you can, please make a donation to support our Library Live cultural programme, either online at one of our cash or contactless donation boxes
