North Manchester FM: The Festival Show, Friday 24 June, 4-5pm

Join me on Friday at 4pm for The Festival Show on North Manchester FM. This week’s episode will be taking a look back at Manchester City of Literature Festival of Libraries, and here’s what’s coming up on Friday…

Inspired by Libraries: Mike Sweeney… On Friday 17th June, I was at Eccles Library to host an event with Mike Sweeney as part of this year’s festival.

The Great Miss Lydia Becker… On Saturday 18th June, I was at Manchester Central Library to hear a talk by Joanna M. Williams about her book The Great Miss Lydia Becker (which you may remember I reviewed on Hannah’s Bookshelf back in April).

North City Library Fun Day… And also on Saturday 18th June, I was at North City Library for their Family Fun Day. I spoke to some of the libraries staff and artist Mandy Beck-McKim about the activities on offer at the library.

Bonus! A preview of Pill (Blue Balloon Theatre)… The Greater Manchester Fringe Festival will be on throughout July. I’ll be hearing from Rebecca Phythian about one of the shows on at this year’s festival: Pill (on at Salford Arts Theatre on 1st and 2nd July).

What’s On… I’ll be taking a look at what’s coming up in July and August as well.

Catch the show on Friday at 4pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
