Friends Who Are Going
Event description



A host of stalls, demonstrations, tastings, viewings, children's activities, music and more! This is a totally new initiative that will be fun for all the family.

Book early and tell your friends!

The day will start with a guided heritage walk around Cheetham Hill, setting off from the museum at 11am and lasting an hour. Activities in the museum itself will start at 12 noon. Visitors will be able to sample food and drink from local kosher suppliers (Beth Din approved). Family entertainment and activities will be provided with a children’s corner in the marquee. In addition to food and drink stalls, there will be a packed programme of events and entertainment.

The day will see popular klezmer band, L’Chaim Kapelye return to the museum. A new art exhibition will also open for the festival, showcasing paintings of Manchester by artist, Tony Raynes.

Dr. Tony Raynes left Manchester nearly half a century ago. But this Boston psychiatrist still remembers his childhood and youth in Crumpsall and Cheetham Hill. Despite a busy practice, he spends his spare time recreating his childhood scenes in glorious colour. JAFFA is thrilled to be able to bring you these evocative, brilliant paintings recalling his youthful days at Balkinds Cheder, Crumpsall Lane and Bury Grammar Schools.
