Manchester Cathedral hosts this very unorthodox reading event from Nadia Bolz-Weber, the heavily-tattooed American evangelical pastor and best-selling writer. Here she’ll be reading from her latest book Shameless, which aims to pull apart traditional relgioious notions of sex as a shameful act, offering a more empowered, progressive view of sexuality that still retains the lens of faith.
On Wednesday, the People’s History Museum hosts this family screen printing workshop.

The Manchester Museum hosts this evening event as part of their ongoing Jallianwala Bagh 1919: Punjab Under Siege exhibition.

This event features music, discussion and offers both Irish and Indian perspectives on colonial violence.
