The events this weekend will have you flailing your arms in the air to the slick vibes of Craig David, getting into the Spanish fiesta spirit at HOME and sampling all kinds of vegan goodness at Manchester Central. Eclectic weekend indeed. Thankfully all these events take place on Friday and Saturday so you can chill on Sunday – just like good old Craigy D.
Here’s our three to see this weekend in no particular order.
1Viva! Festival at HOME
Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival 2017 returns to Manchester for its 23rd edition with an epic celebration of film, theatre and visual art from across the Spanish-speaking world. This year’s inspiration stems from La Transición – an era of cultural revolution and democratic awakening. There will be a selection of awe-inspiring films on the silver screen from and about the period, including the Pedro Almodóvar epic classic Pepi, Luci, Bom. If you fancy getting cultured, this 18 day festival of dance, theatre, live music and panel talks is the way to do it.
