The Whitworth’s Reopening!!


It’s been a long time coming, a lot of blood, sweat and drilling but the Whitworth finally reopens its doors on the 14 Feb 2015 following a £15 million transformation. To celebrate we are throwing a party and you’re all invited!

There is a full programme of events happening on both Saturday and Sunday but these are definitely the highlights:

14 Feb 6.30-7.30pm – Whitworth Young Contemporaries (WYC), our programme for young people, stage a performance in the Grand Hall in collaboration with Manchester Hip Hop band The Mouse Outfit.

14 Feb 8.45-9pm – Fire performance in the art garden from a team of young people who have come together to learn circus skills through Whitworth Young Contemporaries.

When the gallery finally opens its doors, we (the Whitworth Young Contemporaries) can finally move into our new home.

Here is what the Manchester Evening News said about us:

Can’t wait to see you on Saturday!
