Jumble Sale at The Wonder Inn
Shudehill art pub The Wonder Inn is hosting a pay-what-you-wish jumble sale this Saturday. The popular venue will be offloading clothing, fabric, furniture, art materials and miscellanea for as little as you like, and there’s even refreshments available in the form of the jumble sale staples: Tea, coffee and cake. There’s no fixed charge on the door, but as with the items on sale, you are encouraged to pay-what-you-wish into the Wonder Inn’s homeless charity pot.

NOUS Magazine Launch at Fuel Café Bar (pictured)
Locally-published magazine NOUS puts out its eighth issue this weekend, and they’re throwing a launch party at Withington’s Fuel to celebrate. NOUS was founded to facilitate open-minded conversations about mental health, with each issue centred around a particular topic – Insomnia, Disconnection, Work being covered in previous issues – and its bearing upon the mind. This latest issue is focused around ‘Play’ and looks at fun, gaming, gambling, drugs and sex. If you’d like to get your hands on a copy, boxfresh issues will be available on the night, and you’ll also be able to peruse copies of older editions.
Sat 10 Jun, Fuel Café Bar, 448 Wilmslow Road, Manchester, M20 3BW. 7pm – 11pm, www.facebook.com
Andrew McDonald In Conversation at Castlefield Gallery
Castlefield Gallery’s latest exhibition ends this weekend, but to close it out they’ve invited along the artist to talk about his work. Andrew McDonald is animator who uses stark monochrome linework to fashion dark, endlessly-looping video installations, five of which are currently on display at the gallery. McDonald will be talking with Dr. Michael Birchall, of John Moore’s University and Tate Liverpool, who’ll take you right into the dark heart of the artist’s work. It’s an excellent opportunity to delve into the creative process, and a final opportunity to see these installations together.
Sun 11 Jun, Castlefield Gallery, 2 Hewitt Street, Manchester, M15 4GB. 2pm – 4pm, www.castlefieldgallery.org
