Join the party! 16th June – Salford Rediscovered

Join us on Thursday 16th of June as we celebrate the culmination of Rediscovering Salford, a city-wide creative programme inspired by Salford’s parks and green spaces.

Salford Rediscovered – Celebration Event
16th June, 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Salford Cresent – Free to attend

Salford Rediscovered is a celebratory closing party to mark the end of the Rediscovering Salford project, a city-wide programme of events which highlight and celebrate Salford’s green spaces – inspired by the launch of RHS Bridgewater gardens.  

From 2020 – 2022, the project animated the city with new commissions, exhibitions, workshops and events. As it comes to a close, we will gather to share and celebrate with a bang across Salford Museum and Art Gallery, the University of Salford campus, and Peel Park. The event will include visual art, music, films, tours, performances and more. From an exclusive appearance of ‘Madam Mort’ as created by drag artist Cheddar Gorgeous, to mouth-watering street food from GRUB, and to family-friendly workshops, this is a party for anyone and everyone. 

The full programme of events including everything from book benches to DJs is now available to view here.

We do hope you can join us on the 16th to celebrate in style. If you are interested in attending, please register for your free tickets on Eventbrite, here

Salford Rediscovered is led by the Salford Culture and Place Partnership, the University of Salford, Solid Ground, Salford City Council, Salford Museum and Art Gallery, and RHS Garden Bridgewater. Rediscovering Salford has created fantastic engagement and original commissions with Islington Mill, Paradise Works, START Creative, The Lowry and Walk the Plank. This programme is generously supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, as well as contributions from all the project partners.
