Let’s get arty in Manchester with the Richmond Street Art Festival

The best of my knowledge no actual streets will be painted at the Street Art Festival. A missed opportunity perhaps.

Starting tomorrow Manchester is going to get more colorful. We talked about what the Richmond Street Art Festival is back here. The short answer is that a bunch of world famous artists are going to get busy down at the southern end of Mayo Bridge around the massive Souther States silos. Not only did they bring their paint they brought a bunch of friends too.
