Under The Knife Screening at Moston Small Cinema | Fri 18 Oct | 7pm - 9pm

On Friday evening, boutique community picturehouse The Moston Small Cinema hosts a screening of Under The Knife, a searing documentary that takes a serious look at the past and future of the NHS. The film looks critically at the effects of austerity, as well as earlier privatisations, and has drawn admiration from the likes of Ken Loach. It is recommended that you arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of this screening.

GRUB’s 5th Birthday at Great Northern | Fri 18 Oct | 12pm - 6pm

It’s hard to believe, but the GRUB Food Fair turns five this weekend, and they’re celebrating away from their usual Fairfield haunt with a blow out fair at Great Northern on Deansgate. You can expect the cream of the Northern street food, including local Middle Eastern favourites The Ottomen and Korean food junkies Geordie Seoul. There’s also DJs, Mario Kart and even a bouncy castle available all weekend.

Madge Gill at The Whitworth | Sat 19 Oct | 11am - 12pm

Bound Art Book Fair and Rough Trade Publishing host this event at The Whitworth Gallery on Saturday. Editor and curator Sophie Dutton and Manchester University lecturer Dr Eloise Moss will be discussing the life and work of artist and spiritualist Madge Gill: A visionary, self-taught ink drawer, who claimed her works were guided by a spirit called Myrninerest, whom she often credited as her collaborator. This should be a fascinating discussion into a much overlooked and misunderstood artist.
