Join our Guide and explore the transformation of Gallery 3 which heralds an innovative and exciting era linking Manchester's own people

About this Event

Manchester Art Gallery's reopening to the public on Thursday 20 August has heralded the arrival of an exciting and innovative era. The transformation of Gallery 3 now enables historic, modern and contemporary art to speak to one another in ways that can generate new worlds of ideas and experience in all of us.  Join our Guide John Ward as we explore the many links between art and the rich heritage of Manchester's own people. Along with way we will encounter some familiar old friends, certainly - fans of The Hireling Shepherd and The Cheetah and the Stag and Ira Aldridge for example But it is the positioning of such works within the cultural context of a vibrant and growing city that we will find truly breathtaking.

Manchester Art Gallery has an amazing team of volunteer guides who deliver tours at the gallery usually four times a week. While we can't gather people together physically for tours at this time, the team will be delivering online sessions twice a month using Zoom. you can access zoom through a laptop, tablet or smart phone, just something that has a camera and mic. You don’t need to create an account to access the session.
