DHAL + DIY | Old Bank Building | Friday, 06. March 2020

An afternoon of activities designed to celebrate DIY culture, always paired with a bowl of delicious dhal.
Each week will feature DHAL, DIY, DANCE, DEBATE and DRAWING led by some of the finest creative minds Manchester has to offer.
DHAL - always vegan and always seasonal, eat as much dhal as you'd like within your ticket price. Includes locally baked bread and a variety of tantilising toppings.
DIY - learn new skills with do it yourself based workshops and lessons, from how to hang a shelf to how to navigate a Screwfix catalogue before your next big project.
DANCE - full album playbacks, chosen by the team at the Old Bank Residency and by social media vote.
DEBATE - discussion and debate are healthy partners; join the Standard Practice team to debate topics from the importance of civic space to whether Moana is the best Disney film. 
DRAW - pick up a pencil and draw what you see. Mindfulness in action.

Is there an age restriction for entry to DHAL + DIY?
No! Everyone is welcome to join us for these afternoons. 
Is there parking nearby?
The closest parking is pay and display at NCP Shudehill or the RCP car park on Dantzic Street.
We are perfectly located between Shudehill and Manchester Victoria Train Station for public transport and only 5 minutes from the Northern Quarter by foot. 
Are you dog friendly?
Dogs are welcome at the Old Bank Residency but must be kept on their lead at all times.
Do I have to come for the full afternoon?
No! You're welcome to come for as long or as short as you would like.
All activities will be run on a drop-in basis between 12-4pm.
Do I have to get involved in all of the activities?
No (although of course we would love you to)!
These afternoons are about you - so come for a bowl of dhal and ignore the rest, or throw yourself into debate and DIY alongside your lunch. It's totally up to you.
Can I suggest activity for DHAL + DIY?
Absolutely - we're always open to suggestions and ideas. Please send these to jess@standardpractice.studio or via social media @OldBankNOMA.
