Three to see this weekend: canines, K9 and dressing fine

The summer holidays may be over but that doesn’t mean the fun has to be.

On Friday, Anointed clubnight returns to AATMA in the Northern Quarter from 11pm, promising plenty of dark, danceable tunes. On Saturday, a Bloody Big Brunch is coming to Tribeca where customers can pay for a Bloody Mary using women’s sanitary products rather than cash. It’s in aid of two charities which help women suffering period poverty.

On Sunday, it’s Emergency Services Day at Heaton Park. It’s a celebration of the services that keep us safe and well and it’s free.

From Thursday 6th to Sunday 9th September, Ordsall Festival features a pop-up theatre in the park, a mini-zoo, inflatable zone, live DJs,  face painting, and plenty of food and drink.

And that’s just for starters.

Stylist Live

The first ever Stylist Live event is coming to intu Trafford Centre this weekend promising fashion shows, pop-ups, guest appearances by Michelle Keegan and Dame Kelly Holmes, free drinks and plenty of retailer and restaurant offers across the weekend. Go on, pamper yourself. 8th and 9th September.

Sit & Stay at Sadler’s Yard

Calling all dog lovers! A dog show with a difference is coming to Sadler’s Yard at NOMA on Saturday from midday. There will be competitions (including Waggiest Tail, Smallest Dog With the Biggest Attitude and Lookalikes) and canine shopping opportunities, street food and treats. Music will be provided by Living Room Dance Club and Pasta Paul. It’s free and all are welcome, but be sure to book a ticket as space may be limited.

Doctor Who Convention

The TARDIS is touching down in Manchester this weekend for a Doctor Who Fan Convention at The Printworks. Former Timelords Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Paul McGann will be there, plus directors and scriptwriters, so hold onto your sonic screwdriver and get ready to travel to another dimension.
