Knock on at apartment 114 New Maker Yards ? this autumn and find yourself immersed in the lives of three mates, who will welcome you into their homes, introduce you to their friends, and get you in a party mood, in a way only Mancunians can.

Mates is an immersive play, and feel-good celebration of friendship ? that explores the warmth and community synonymous with Manchester, through the city’s culture, lifestyle, and love for a good house party. ?

You’ll meet Charlotte, Bridget and Victoria, three creative, outgoing neighbours who will stir you with stories about their day, show you how it feels to live as part of a community of friends, and dazzle you with the sights and sounds of Manchester.

Expect spoken word performance, comedy, and a guided meditation before you’re swept off to a house party next door, complete with a top live performance, hazy clubbing visuals and photo booth!

Finish off the experience by enjoying a FREE pint ? or burger ? at the canal-side Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse.

If you want to experience the best of two cities, then New Maker Yards is the place to be. It is part of Middlewood Locks, a growing neighbourhood by the canal basin on the old Salford-Manchester border!

So dust off your dancing shoes, and book yourself, and your mates, a FREE ticket now!
