The Photographic Angle is an organisation that tours photography exhibitions all around the UK, and you can see their latest work at St. James’ until Sunday. It’s called Our Stories and is dedicated to documentary photography – photographs that capture an intimate moment, or a unique story – featuring submissions from seasoned artists and gifted amateurs alike.

Tombed Visions Label Showcase at Common
Audio cassettes are something of a beleaguered format – never enjoying the renaissance that’s been blessed upon vinyl – but out on the fringes of recorded music, there’s still some labels championing the old C90. One such label is Tombed Visions, and the critically-acclaimed tape peddlers will be bringing some of their favourite bands to Common this Saturday for a free showcase. See our full preview for more information.
Sun 29 Jan, Common, 39 – 41 Edge Street, Manchester, M4 1HW, Tel: 0161 832 9245, 4pm, www.aplacecalledcommon.co.uk
