Sick! Festival Nature of Why

Feeling Curious?

Time to try something a little bit different

It is never easy to know where to begin when in search of something a little bit different. You know you love the way Matthew Bourne choreographs or Lowry painted his pictures but what else is out there that you’re missing out on?!

We’ll let you in on a secret, we know some incredible companies and artists that may not be on your radar yet and we really want you to fall in love with them too. So, each month we’re going to round up a list of our ‘must see moments’ that otherwise might pass you by. Some of the best experiences come from trusting a friend’s recommendation.

This September discover mesmerising circus, world-class dance or laugh-out-loud comedy. Or, you could visit The Lowry in a Roundabout way.

Give something a go from the list below. After all, there is always a first time for everything.
