Graffiti, Trafford Centre and Beautiful Thing .

November 30, 2011

It’s a bit of a hotch potch today as there’s a few pieces I’ve been meaning to show you that don’t quite make a blogpost on their own.  The first is some more wonderful Graffiti captured in Manchester’s Northern Quarter the other week.

There’s a fab metallic tree sculpture that I’ve not seen before in Piccadilly gardens (above) and the fountains caught my eye in the sunlight too. Meanwhile Christmas is definitely looming in the Trafford Centre, just outside of Manchester.

Great window displays from the likes of Ted Baker and some fun gifts for the man who has everything.

I also was lucky enough to catch the present production of Jonathan Harvey’s Beautiful Thing which is currently on at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. It is on until December 3rd but you’d better book quickly as tickets are disappearing fast. More info here.

I must compliment all of the cast for an outstanding production but in particular Claire-Louise Cordwell who plays Sandra gave a strong and touching performance as the mother of one of the boys.  Here’s a couple of images I took of the stage and floating world above the audience.

      Thanks Julian, isn’t it great when graffiti artists do something fun, bright and uplifting. A positive result.

    A couple of weeks ago I saw a couple of graffiti artists doing their thing on a side of a pretty large wall – there were cherry pickers being used! Can’t wait to go back and see the finished work.

    Nice shots
