Role up! Role up! Welcome to a brand new and exciting exhibition part of the Unit X festival!
‘An exhibition compiled of life’s curiosities and humanity’s obsession with categorization. Collecting and archiving the banal and bizarre, authentic and fake, representation and paradoy.’
‘Artists respond to Manchester’s museums and the role they maintain within our everyday lives.’
Work includes sculpture, paint, drawing, photography and video. The exhibition is FREE and open to all!
Opening night is Monday 13th from 6pm and should be quite a spectacle with interactive art to fondle and wall to wall curiosities.
Show runs from Monday 13th – Friday 17th (so don’t miss out!)

We’re blown away to be named the Trafford & Hulme CAMRA Cider Pub of The Year. As many of you have noticed we have been selling real cider on our back bar for the last year or so and its gone down a storm.
If you’re not aware real cider is made from nothing but apples or pears (perry) & is not fizzy as most draught ciders are.
To celebrate there will be a presentation held at The Font, New Wakefield St, Manchester on April 10th at 8.30pm by members from the Trafford & Hulme branch of CAMRA. Please come and join us for a pint of real cider on the evening.
“During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men”. http://www.movember.com
To celebrate this charitable month we have created a special money raising cocktail with the incredibly imaginative name, drum roll please…..MOVEMBER-ITO!!!!
A mix of Jim Bean, fresh lime, mint, sugar syrup and soda severed long with ice our Movember-ito is an all round do gooder of a cocktail.
These beauts can be purchased at The Font Mcr all the way through November for £3, with £1 from each drink going directly to the Movember Fund.
It for a great cause so come get involved, drinking in the name of charity, doesn’t get better than that now does it!
So it has begun, Freshers week hit Manchester with a bang, and we at Font Mcr were at the excitable thick of it! Our new cocktail menu has gone down an absolute storm with our flavoured mojitos flying off the bar and our very own ‘bitch on wheels’(a jager based cocktail, not a staff member) has proved popular with anyone who fancies something abit different.
To add to our new cocktail menu we have updated our food menu and made it extra yummy, gourmet burgers are now available, including the chefs very own chicken burger creation-full of tasty flavour, and a favourite with many!
Both menus can be viewed on the bottom of the page if you fancy a gander!
We are also building an increasing craft beer range, a selection that will rival any other bar in Manchester (fancy something abit different? Our staff have a real beer passion and will be happy to recommend something new for you).
So if its cocktails, food, beer or a lovingly made tea or coffee(with the now famous complimentary freddo) Font Mcr is the place to be this Autumn.
