A day of speech and discussion at the Burgess Foundation and a pop up jungle in Salford are just two of our top picks of free things to do in Manchester this weekend.

Pop-up Jungle at Studio 10 | Fri 22 Nov | 10am - 6pm

Salford is transformed into darkest Peru this weekend as Studio 10 on Booth Street becomes a jungle. They’re hosting this indoor plant sale all through the weekend, where you can pick up some fresh foliage at a reasonable price – with some houseplants available for as little as £2 – all supplied by renowned international horticulture chain Bergamotte. They’re also offering unique containers and plant pots to match to your greenery.
