celebrate the city!

an evening of modernist delights

at An Outlet Coffee House, 77 Dale Street

Thurs 22nd of October at 6.30pm

the Manchester Modernist Society is 6 months old already! perfect time for a soiree…

what an exciting 6 months too - we’ve held a rainy picnic under a famous artwork, collaborated on a fabulous walk under the mancunian way, discussed modernism over scones & tea in leeds, ridden on a giant swan on bootle’s canalside, enthused about the magic of concrete with geographers at urbis and made 250 new friends across the city who also share our passion for Manchester’s contemporary and recent past…

so, as the nights draw colder, what better way to mark this mini milestone than with a sophisticated evening at the splendid Outlet Coffee House for an evening of modernist delights.

to coincide with our half birthday we have published the first of a series of postcards celebrating the modern design heritage of the City of Manchester; featuring images sourced from the city archives, over 10,000 of these postcards will be distributed freely to the public, at information points such as the Central Library, Tourist Information Centre, the Manchester Museum, Whitworth Art Gallery, Victoria Baths and the Greater Manchester Transport Museum.

join us at 6.30 for a glass of wine, the launch of our beautiful postcards, a screening of short films from the NW Film Archive and an introduction by Dr. Steve Millington (Senior Lecturer of Human Geography at Manchester Metropolitan University).

hope to see you there,
the manchester modernists
