First In The Fight Exhibition

This is the last weekend to see the open-air exhibition paying tribute to the women who shaped Manchester’s history at Kampus. 

The exhibition comprises of 10 pieces of art depicting 10 different women who had an impact on the city to mark Women’s History Month.

Visitors will also be encouraged to celebrate a woman in their life by emblazoning the garden with ribbons in the colours of the Suffragettes – white for purity, purple for dignity and green for hope.

Blue Run

The Blue Run is back this Saturday 26 March at the Etihad. The charity run organised by Manchester City and City in the Community has two distance options for fans to choose from, so while some may prefer taking on the 2.5km route, there’s also a 5km option which offers runners more of a challenge.

It’s your choice to run, walk, or dance your way around the route – which will take you from the Etihad Stadium to the City Football Academy, whilst being covered in blue powder along the way.

Planet Earth II - Live in Concert

A screening of the BBC’s breathtaking Planet Earth II series is coming to the AO Arena in Manchester this Friday 25 March, accompanied by live music performed by an 80 piece philharmonic orchestra.

Hosted by science and natural history TV presenter Liz Bonnin, with behind the scenes insights from Mike Gunton, these live concerts will highlight the incredible power and beauty of mother nature in all her glory.
