A free festival celebrating Saflord’s artists, stories and green spaces kicks off this week, bringing an eclectic mix of activities that span everything from food and film to exhibitions and live music.

Salford Rediscovered is the culmination of a two-year effort that has seen the organisers animate the city with new commissions, exhibitions, workshops and events. As the project draws to a close, visitors are invited to join for a series of events across Salford Museum and Art Gallery, the University of Salford campus and Peel Park this Thu 16 Jun.

Salford Rediscovered will include music, films, tours, performances and a joy-filled celebration of the Rediscovering Salford exhibition and commissions, including a one-time-only appearance of Madam Mort, as created by drag artist Cheddar Gorgeous.

There’ll also be typically delicious street food from the folks at GRUB and a series of family-friendly workshops and performances between 4pm-6.30pm, before the party vibes get properly underway at 7pm, running through until 10pm.

Other highlights include a heritage photo trail; taking participants on a fascinating history trip through Peel Park, a guided tour of the 2022 degree show and a series of immersive performances at the New Adelphi.
