Manchester, the place for Creative Craft and Arts

Here in Manchester city centre, Fred Aldous is right in the heart of the Creative arena, supplying, makers, designers and artists in and around the city and beyond.
Right now there's so many events happening here in Manchester, there's the inaugral Free For Arts Festival which is spread across the whole city in venues and locations. Showcasing art by new and upcoming Artists from the city. Along side the paintings, photography, installation there's a whole host of performance pieces being staged in bars and clubs around the city! We even have Sketch City, the local Street Art-Graffiti group in our windows creating Art in the very shop!
Then there's the Great Northern Craft Show at Spinningfields from the 23rd of October till the 25th, now in it's second year, this is a fantastic show that brings some of the higher end craft practitoners selling anything from clothing, glass, ceramics, textiles and jewellery.
If you're in and around Manchester these next few weeks we really suggest that you check out what's going on and around town... and if you see something that's inspired you to get creative, pop along to see us here on Lever Street.
