The Whitworth returns with its biannual event, The Frost Fair on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December, 11am till 7pm. The Frost Fair will take over the grounds of The Whitworth with an epic programme of music, entertainment, workshops plus an outdoor cinema, huge dancefloor, craft markets and street food.
The theme for this year’s Frost Fair is reflection and celebration, reflecting on the challenges of the past year and celebrating being back together. At the core of the weekender is art and togetherness; visitors, the local community and members of the whole family are welcomed to come together and enjoy winter at The Whitworth.
The Sculpture Terrace located at the front entrance of the gallery will be transformed into an entertainment square, home to the main stage and the largest outdoor dancefloor in the city. The main stage will present a musical extravaganza across the weekend. On Saturday the legendary MC Kwasi will be hosting the stage
getting everyone hyped and dancing. Me Gusta Collective will kick off the day with a mix of Afro-Latin, Caribbean and Middle Eastern sounds. Manchester’s favourite duo Mr Scruff and Mikey D.O.N will take to the stage at later in the afternoon.
Frost Fair is free to attend and will run from Saturday 4th December to Sunday 5th December 2021, at The Whitworth, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester, M15 6ER
