3D Printing at Central Library
3D printing is likely to be one of the technologies that will define the next decade, but with most consumers priced out the market, there’s precious few chances to get hands-on with a printer. However, on Friday at Central Library, there’s a drop-in session that includes a live demonstration with a printer and discussions of free software packages that can be used to fashion these three-dimensional creations. Booking ahead is essential.
Fri 29 Apr, Central Library, St Peter’s Square, Manchester M2 5PD, 2pm – 4pm, www.eventbrite.co.uk

Week 53 Festival Opening at The Lowry
Week 53 is an interesting little festival that makes use of spaces usually unavailable to the paying public: Rehearsal rooms, dressing rooms, backstage – all turned into unique theatrical spaces. Though most of the events – as detailed in our preview – will set you back a few pennies, there are a couple of freebies available. Running from the very first day of the festival is Katie Paterson’s cosmic Syzygy exhibition, which takes a look at eclipses and other celestial events.
Fri 29 Apr – Sun 8 May, The Lowry, Pier 8, The Quays, Salford M50 3AZ, 11am – 5pm, www.week53festival.co.uk
