The Bench Self Made Gallery, was a pop-up multi-purpose creative space beneath the Bench concept store in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The Self Made brand is all about ‘people that make things happen’ and the space was made available to artists of all kinds to make, create, perform and network with like-minded people.
Having taken part in the 'All in the Wrist' exhibition at the Gallery these speakers were then used as a simple backdrop to a handful of 'Lunch Time Live' sessions, a platform created for up and coming Manchester bands to reach a new audience while simultaneously providing people who worked in the area a chance for a bit of live music on their lunch break; lovely stuff. The sessions featured some of Manchester’s hottest new performers including JJ Rosa, Frazer King and Brown Brogues.
