All the Fun of the Fair at Central Library (pictured)
This family-themed event takes a little look at the history of Belle Vue. Modern mancunians know it for the dog track, but for over 100 years from 1836 Belle Vue had a zoo and funfair, and played host to annual circuses. In the true spirit of the old park, there’ll be circus-themed activities for the little ones – it’s recommended for under 12s – to get stuck into and there’s an extensive interactive exhibit, should you want to delve a little deeper into local history.
Sat 19 Mar, Central Library, St Peter’s Square, Manchester M2 5PD, 12pm – 4pm,

Paradise Now Screening at RR Multi-facility room
When it was released back in 2005, Paradise Now was the first Palestinian film to be nominated for an Oscar. A decade later, the conflict it depicts is still disappointingly relevant: It steps inside the minds and lives of two wannabe suicide bombers, and asks tough questions about the practice and its role in terrrorism and liberation. This screening, hosted by Rethink Rebuild Society – a Syrian community group – is followed by a discussion and refreshments.
Sun 20 Mar, RR Multi-facility room, Unit 7, Longsight Business Park, Hamilton Road, Manchester M13 0PD,
