Boating, Ball Ponds and the Basin!


At Lomography Gallery Store Manchester! Are you looking for something fun in Manchester this Summer? Well you’ve come to the right place, read on to find out all about the 2012 Canal Festival and all the fun it has to offer!

What: Atelier Zero
Where: Piccadilly Basin (right next to LomoWall Mancester!)
When: All summer!

LomoWall Manchester is just one part of the 2012 Canal Festival taking place in Piccadilly Basin this summer. Another project that had its official launch last week is Atelier Zero which provides lots of fun for all the family!

Atelier Zero is a worldwide premier bringing together office for subversive architecture, students from both Manchester School of Architecture and Ecole Speciale D’Architecture, the winning proposals include a new form of play, an Olympic village and boating lake evoking Manchester’s industrial heritage, as well as an urban sporting arena.

There’s all sorts of fun to be had. You can row on the water for free, play in the ball pond (adults and kids alike are welcome to partake!) and have a kick about on the giant swingball. And during August we also have a workshop
planned that will actually take place in one of the huts that they’ve erected!

So what are you waiting for? Time to get fully involved in Summer and take advantage of all the fun things on offer!
