12-3pm. After months of careful tending, The Museum Allotment is ready for harvest. Kids can get their hands dirty helping dig up veg from our allotment and enjoy performances from The Vegetable Nannies (see link below); Kids and adults can become part of a veggie-playing symphony orchestra by making a cucumberphone, carrot flute, celery guitar, leek violin or squash and cabbage percussion and taking part in a music making workshop to learn a composition that stems from a mixed vegetable soup recipe from the Museum's cafe (or you could just watch and enjoy the music - our cafe will be serving mixed vegetable soup, so you can enjoy watching the performance of vegetables in the mix whilst drinking mixed vegetable soup!); Parents can discuss the ethics of food production and learn about urban foraging and everyone can sample food prepared by local chefs.
Part of The Manchester Food and Drink Festival and The Manchester Weekender - forty-eight hours of art, culture, music, film, food, literature, walks, politics, poetry, photography, theatre, spectacle and games all wrapped up into a single weekend. www.creativetourist.com
