Adult Learners’ Week at the Manchester Museum

May 5, 2012

12-18 May sees lots of events across Manchester and the UK to celebrate Adult Learners’ Week.

At the Museum we have two events specially put on for the week.

On Sunday 13 May 11am -12noon Cairo Chaos will be visiting Unearthed Ancient Egypt exhibition at the Museum.. With the esteemed poet extraordinaire, Toot and Carboot in collaboration with the terrifyingly talented magician, Watt the Heka. More ‘laffs than a safari full of mere cats. More rhythm than a Nile river cruise. Hear words and see magic in a story. That will amaze baffle and amuse. Open to mummies, daddies and young pharaohs.

And then on Friday 18 May 6.30-8.30pm, for Museums at Night and Adult Learners week, the After Hours is an invitation to our tranquil secret gardens in the city. Play croquet on our allotment with a glass of pimms, go into our secret gothic tower to see the treasures of our herbarium and discover how nature can make you feel happy. Wander through the meadows of Nature Discovery or make your own herbal pampering potion in Living Worlds.
