Three aerial panoramas shot during the launch of this spring’s Collecting History exhibition, celebrating thirty years of the wonderful Manchester Craft and Design Centre (MCDC) in the Northern Quarter.

Formerly a fish and poultry market, the opening of MCDC in 1982 preceded the wider transformation of the Northern Quarter from a working district into Manchester’s creative hub. The exhibition aims to explore and collate experiences and information from the building’s past.

The launch event included family-friendly activities, 1982-themed food at Oak Street Café, and a live music performance of a specially commissioned piece from English Electric (electronics) and Thomas Thorpe (saxophone)

For more information on the exhibition, which runs from April 28th to June 30th, please visit the MCDC website. You can view a short timelapse video of the event below…
