BPM BBQ at Hulme Park (pictured)
Gig promoters and record label BPM – short for Big People Music – are taking over Hulme Park this Saturday for a party and BBQ. As well as bringing the big beats they’ve made a name with over the past several years, they’ll also be packing a big grill full of meat and a bowlful of specially-brewed punch called ‘The Mancunian Wray’. The event is BYOB, so if you’re wanting to get loose you’ll have to bring your own cooler.
Sat 22 Jul, Hulme Park, Stretford Road, Manchester, M15 4ZY. 2pm – 11pm,

Your Story, Our History at People’s History Museum
This year marks 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Britain, and the People’s History Museum is commemorating this important slice of legal and social history with a series of short film screenings reflecting on the experiences of LGBTQ+ people. Several contributors talk on film about the personal impact of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, and subsequent equality legislation. As well as the screenings, activists at the PHM will be talking through how to get more involved with the future of equality law, with tips on contacting peers and MPs, as well as an overview on how laws are created.
Sun 23 Jul, People’s History Museum, Left Bank, Spinningfields, Manchester, M3 3ER. 11am – 1pm,
