Savage Ink, People's History Museum, 10th February 2018

Always keen to soak up the cultural experiences our region has to offer, Young Mensa North are returning to the People's History Museum.

Savage Ink, People's History Museum, Manchester, 14:00, Saturday 10th February 2018

This is a temporary exhibition focusing on the history of satirical cartoons; from their origins in the eighteenth century through to the present day. It particularly focuses on the role of the cartoon in the fight for equal representation, displaying a wide variety of relevant works.


We'll meet in the Left Bank Cafe Bar within the museum, and then go on through to the exhibition together. Depending on how everyone feels, we may also wander through some of the other parts of the museum.

The museum and exhibition are free, with a voluntary donation of £5 suggested.

The museum is easy to get to no matter how you're planning to travel; their website gives much more detailed information on this than I could tell you, so I'd recommend having a look there.

If you can't make it to the museum but would like to join us later, you'll find us in The Gas Lamp at 17:00, just up the road from the museum. This "subterranean drinking den" prides itself on its selections of whisky, gin and ale, so there really should be something to suit every discerning Mensan's taste.

We will more than likely continue on to more of Manchester's fine establishments, so keep an eye on the Facebook group and Telegram group to find us.

First time coming to a Young Mensa event?

Feel free to let us know you're coming by emailing us at contact@youngmensanorth.com or by posting on our Facebook group, and we'll make sure to look out for you.

If you get lost

If you need help finding us then you can call or text the Phone Robot for directions (or for some encouragement to come along): 0144 360 6367.

We also always keep an eye on our Telegram group at the start of our events so you can get in touch with us there.
