Will Whittington and his Cat

Back To Top

Manchester Shakespeare Company at Urmston Library, Saturday 14 January 2017, 2pm.

Join our hero Willy Whittington as he leaves his home to seek his fortune in London. Helped by the magic of Fairy Liquid and his faithful companion Spot the Cat, Willy gets a job at the Queen Vic Pub where he meets lazy Idle Jack and the cook Sarah Slowcooker and falls in love with Alice the daughter of the bossy boss Peggy Fitzsnugly. But evil lurks on the road in the shape of King Rattus the Third who plans to take over the world!

Can our heroes save the day? Will Good win over Evil? Will they all live happily ever after? There’s only one way to find out!

A free family-friendly, traditional pantomime from the Manchester Shakespeare Company.

Book online at Eventbrite. Contact 0161 912 3189 or email urmston.library@trafford.gov.uk for more details.

An evening with Mandasue Heller

Back To Top

Urmston Library Tuesday 7 February at 7.30pm

Come and meet Mandasue Heller, author of the Sunday Times top ten bestseller 'Afraid', as she talks about her 15th book, 'Run', a gripping urban thriller set in Manchester’s gritty criminal underworld.

From the back streets of Manchester to the nightclubs and penthouses of the beautiful people, Mandasue Heller knows the world she writes. Born in Warrington she moved to Manchester in the 1980s where she found the inspiration for her crime thrillers: she spent ten years living in the infamous Hulme Crescents and was a professional singer for many years before turning her hand to writing.

This event will be followed by a book signing. Tickets are free and bookable through Eventbrite.
