Whitworth Weekending is a free weekend of art, music and performance for all ages in Whitworth Park. It’s our way of saying thank you to everyone who makes the Whitworth what it is. Celebrate with us the last days of the Whitworth as we know it, before we close to extend and transform the gallery. We re-open in Summer 2014.
 
The goodbye begins at 4pm on Friday with the best of After Hours and continues with a festival feel on Saturday. The drama and spectacle will come to a head on Saturday evening as the fabric of the building becomes the canvas for the show. As dusk falls on Sunday, Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson, artists who know Manchester and the Whitworth well, will bring the weekend to a close with Six White Horses, an enchanting and beautiful new work to mark the last moment of this chapter of the Whitworth’s history.
