The Manchester Museum Mummy Walk
1-5.30pm in Piccadilly Gardens.
Fancy a family Halloween celebration with a difference this year? Then come along to Piccadilly Gardens and be part of The Manchester Museum Mummy Walk. Featuring mummy dance, lantern and mask making workshops during the day, the event will culminate in a twilight mummy walk and parade around Piccadilly Gardens. Coming in fancy dress is optional! With artist Sophie Tyrrell, musician Danny Henry, Museum experts and short performances by Circus House.
The Museum has been working with CityCo and Piccadilly Partnership to organise the event and as well as celebrating Halloween, the event marks the centenary of the first Egypt gallery to be opened at the Museum and the opening of the new Ancient Worlds galleries. These three new galleries highlight our collections from Manchester and the region, and from ancient civilizations such as Greece, Rome and Egypt. They showcase the best of our outstanding archaeology collections and reveal the people behind the objects: who made them, who used them, who lost and re-discovered them, who collected, classified and interpreted them.
