In the spirit of DIY, attendees are expected to contribute something to helping make the festival work.

20th June: workshops and skillshares during the day, poetry and acoustic music open mic in the evening

VENUE AND ACCESS
The venue is a large empty house which the organisers are moving into shortly after the festival ends. As such, festival attendees are asked to be respectful of the space and of the neighbours. Venue details will be made available after booking and closer to the time of the festival.
Renovations are planned to put an access ramp into the venue so the ground floor of the venue (where workshops and activities will take place) will be accessible. If this work is not completed on time, we will source a portable ramp.
The venue is a 10 min bus ride on a regular service from Manchester city centre.
Some food will be available on a donation basis. Some crash space available at the venue, please let us know if you need this when booking. Dry space, so no alcohol or drugs which arent for health stuff please.
Please book your place by filling in the following form. You can use this form to express an interest in running an activity at the festival.
See you there!
