A monthly poetry night with changing themes and an open invite to all. Regular guest speakers, creative workshops and an open mic session for poets, thinkers and musicians are all part of the monthly event.
Levenshulme Market is a weekly affair. This Saturday sees the return of the ‘Handmade and Home’ edition. Expect to see an abundance of hand crafted homeware, gifts and cards, lovingly restored and up-cycled furniture, one off ceramics, eclectic and vintage collectibles as well limited edition art prints. All this alongside a wide selection of food stalls, craft ale bar and hot drink stands. Lovely stuff.
Levy Soup is a way of promoting community based activity through a creative “crowdfunding” event.
Come along and you’ll get to share a home-made Soup dinner with new and old friends. (Plus the chance to network and have a dance too). There is a paying bar at the venue.
Levy Soup has been set up to celebrate and support creative projects in Levenshulme that benefit the local community.
For a suggested donation of £5 attendees receive a bowl of veggie soup, some bread and a vote. During the evening you will hear pitches from people who want to do something in Levenshulme.
For the first “Soup” we have chosen the theme of food so if you have a food based idea or project that you would like to have funded then this is for you.
Each presenter has four minutes to pitch their idea and answer four questions from the audience.
At the event, people eat, talk, share ideas and then vote on the project they think benefits Levenshulme the most. At the end of the night the winner goes home with all of the money raised in the evening to carry out their project.
Everyone is welcome to attend– no matter where you live you can share in this experience.
