Japanese Celebration


Many thanks to all who came along to our fabulous Japanese evening last night! We were treated to a wonderful feast of beautiful fresh sushi from the Yo!Sushi team, a fascinating talk on the gardens of Kyoto by Sean Harkin, Manchester's National Trust Gardener-in-Residence, and the chance to wander around the medieval buildings with a glass of wine. Upstairs in the Library, visitors were able to examine some of our extraordinary collection of Japanese prints and photographs collected by Library donors in the early twentieth century. We were delighted to see so many people enjoying the evening.

We will be holding another evening event in September with wine, nibbles, and a talk by furniture historian Jonathan Foyle. More to come on that soon, with booking details.
