Last weekend Josh and I visited his birthplace Manchester for the Cupnorth coffee festival. Two days of caffeine themed fun, food, art and music. The festival was radical and I met so many nice people including Makers Dozen who had a exhibition of work at the festival. I chatted to a lovely guy called Joseph Hartley (check out his work) who is a ceramicist and part of Makers Dozen.

I took a few photos over the weekend, highlights include checking out the incredible street art, a three floor branch of Paperchase which included a magical pop-up espresso bar called Tinderbox. Also shopping and eating at Oklahoma, cocktails at Matt & Phreds, much whiskey at The Whiskey Jar and a beautiful meal at The Cornerhouse. I can’t wait to go back and explore more of the city.
