“So Many Beauties”, Manchester Cathedral – 6 April 2017

Thursday 6 April 2017, 19:00

Presented by Adages, the performance is a “dementia-friendly oratorio” by Holly Marland, based on work with people with dementia and their carers in the northwest.

Based on an ACE-funded project, with input from guest artists and students from the Royal Northern College of Music.
