Festival Launch Party

5th November 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Festival Launch Party

Monday 5th November, Manchester Jewish Museum, 7-10pm

This event is free but ticketed. Reserve your free ticket

Remember, remember, the 5th of November…and come along to the Festival of Leaving’s free launch party. It is the start of a two-week playful and surprising exploration of leaving, loss and legacy at the museum.

For one night only you will be able to sample the delights of our museum in a caravan ‘Journey with Absent Friends’ and contribute to the start of our Mexican Ofrenda installation, a colourful memorial to honour our ancestors, both courtesy of artist Ellie Harrison. There will be storytelling around the bonfire, with writer Sherry Ashworth and poet Nikky Norton Shafau will read her poem ‘The Wall’. Have a sneak preview of Jo Scorah’s Nomad installation in our Ladies’ Gallery and add to the display.

So enter our beautiful Sephardi synagogue space and experience the museum like never before!
