Organiser: Urban Splash
Location: New Islington, Manchester

On Saturday the 6th September 2pm – 8pm New Islington, Manchester will be turned into a playground for Urban Folk, in celebration of the heritage of the area and the brand new community thriving there. We’ll be mixing up new urban and traditional folk art forms and getting creative in the park. Sketch City are gathering together the finest of their artists and pimping up barges. The Kings Arms Knitting Club will be Yarn Bombing (that’s graffiti with knitting). We’ll have an exclusive performance of a brand new collaboration between folks finest, The Boat Band, Manchester’s Unity Radio MC and vocal talent. Urban Folk cocktails from Fluid Bars, real ales and cider from the Marble Brewery, barbeques and canal craft and story telling plus an explosive performance from the Gulliver’s Boom Box crew will make an amazing day out.
