Contemporary art and Impressionism
in Manchester

Walking tour

28-29 September

You can make your mind up about contemporary and impressionism while we reveal the stories of two artists: Ashcroft and Valette.

One is contemporary and local capturing Manchester’s treasures old and new and the other French who brought Impressionism to Manchester and who taught our favourite northern artist L.S. Lowry.

See the places where they have painted and raise a glass to art with other exciting people.
