Calling all Knitters and Crocheters!

Sat 14th – Sun 22nd June
Nexus Art Café are inviting knitters, crocheters and other ‘yarnies’ to come and use the café space for yarn creativity for the whole nine days. A hamper of yarn, hooks and needles available during opening times all week.
This event is run as part of World Wide Knit in PublicWeek. WWKIP started out  as a day, extended to a weekend and now spans the intervening week days across at least 4 continents.
Come and relax, learn a new skill and share your work in progress. Why not make something lovely for our cafe? Tea cozies, coasters or critters, we’d love to have them on display.

Northern Quarter After Dark Thursday 15th May

We’re delighted to be taking part in this year’s Northern Quarter After Dark on Thursday 15th May, a celebration of arts after hours. We’ll be hosting an exhibition by Manchester Metropolitan’s Project Unit X, showcasing work by Interior Design students. They will be taking over our window space, garden and even our tables as they explore the idea of bringing the outside in.

A garden made from recycled materials, tablecloths with messages on plus a film will be waiting for you at Nexus where you can relax or recharge with a coffee before exploring the rest of the NQAD events.

We’ll be open until 9pm so make sure you join us and celebrate this fantastic night.
