What to expect in Manchester's Northern Quarter.
Keith's street photography workshop in Manchester takes place in Northern Quarter which has become a destination in it’s own right being the centre for alternative and bohemian culture. It is popular for its vast array of bars and cafes as well as its mix of music and clothes shops. It is also known as a home to the creative industries and in particular fashion design with various designers and clothing wholesalers populating its back streets.
As we walk around you’ll notice a network of narrow alleyways and streets with lots of public art. The Northern Quarter has been used as film locations for films such as the 2004 version of Alfie because of the area’s stunning architecture and in 2011 in the filming of Captain America: The First Avenger Dale Street was used as its location for 1940s New York.
Nightlife in the Northern Quarter includes music venues The Night and Day Café, Band on the Wall, the Roadhouse, and The Ruby Lounge. It’s an amazing place for street photography both in the day and at night, it’s a location not to be missed.
This street photography workshop in Manchester is ideal for beginners too.
