PICTURE MY WEEK – A wonderful day in Manchester December 21, 2013 by portugalholidayguide 2 Comments First I headed to China town , which is where the city art gallery is located and was over the moon as they had 2 fantastic temporary exhibitions on ! Firstly I strolled around the Dazzle exhibition Here is a small sample of the wonderfully crafted jewellery on show . I am not sure if I could pull off wearinf one of these hats , but I loved them . The other exhibition was a series of brilliant tapestries by the artist Grayson Perry The tapestries were out of this world . i had a wander around the Xmas markets There were so many food and drink stalls. This one was very tempting ! I managed to resist having strudel and cream and settled for cup of mulled wine , I popped into another favourite building – The Royal Exchange theatre, to have a look at their craft shop I particularly liked these pictures made from intricately cut out paper I treated myself to an evening at the theatre , as they had a few seats left for the evening performance and had a lovely afternoon catching up with my friend Zoe . Then it was back to see the play , which was wonderfully funny , and a perfect end to my day in Manchester . Advertisements Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
