From the high profile Cultural Olympiad bell ringing commission to his recent album release, Martin Creed has always maintained a diverse body of work tempered by the early promise of a Turner Prize. Manchester Art Gallery will host a talk about his work in the context of an increasing emphasis on musical output and works influenced by compositional techniques, including a recent tour with The Cribs.

Early Evening
In conversation with  Steven Gartside from Manchester Metropolitan University. The talk will be at Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, M2 3JL. Beginning at 7.00pm. Places are free, but limited and can be reserved here

Later 
Martin Creed and his band will be performing a live set at local arts venue Islington Mill, a deceptive blend of simple lyrics and angular guitar pop should make for a great end to the evening.

Islington Mill, James Street, Salford M3 5HW. Beginning at 8.30pm.

Tickets are £6 in advance/ £8 on the door and are available from Skiddle.com here.
