Join Afrocats at the Whitworth this half term. With brilliant creative movement sessions and arts and crafts workshops, there’s plenty for young people and their families to enjoy.

Afrocats are an award-winning charity who create fantastic experiences and opportunities for communities and people across Greater Manchester.

During half term week the cafe at the Whitworth will only be serving a limited menu. However, the Grand Hall will be available as a picnic space for families to bring their own food and drink.

Movement activities will take place from 12:00 noon – 3:00 pm.

Arts & Crafts activities will take place at 12:00 noon, 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm.

The activities are free and you don’t need to book.
