Whitworth Pub Crawl

Hey! & Honeyfeet Knees Up
27 April, 2pm

The Whitworth may be closed, but our work continues. Join us for art, performance, workshops and courses – all held inside some of the city’s best-loved watering holes. Hey! & Honeyfeet Knees Up: Hosted by members of Manchester’s finest ethio-trad, folk-hop and barrelhouse-pop exponents, Honeyfeet, this session is an opportunity to flex your vocal muscles – while enjoying a Sunday afternoon pint. The band responds to work from the Whitworth’s collection with a selection of specially written folk songs. Your job is to form their impromptu backing choir, and make this interactive gig one to remember. Special guests from Manchester’s music scene will also make an appearance. Venue tbc. Full events listings and further details here...
