Just got a couple of things to share with you about what we have been up to and what’s going on in Chorlton over the coming weeks.
We recently tried Jasmine on Barlow Moor Road. Some of our friends tried it and compared it to Aladdin in Withington, so we were sold! Describing itself as an Arabic restaurant, take away and cafe they have a huge menu of Arabic, Lebanese and Middle Eastern Cuisine.
I’ll leave it to the proper food bloggers to give you more info, but I will say we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was attentive, we liked everything we tried and the BYOB made it excellent value. The portion sizes were quite large, so we ordered a bit too much, and there is a lot of delicious bread with everything, so you are going to be very full (and happy) if you eat here. The decor is a bit beige, but the atmosphere was quite lively. Perhaps that was because they had a hen party in!
I’m sure you have lots of things pencilled in to your diary over the Chorlton Arts Festival, but if you are free on Sunday check out The Afternoon Sessions at Proof, featuring the fabulous Ordsall Singers. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this a capella group many times, as they can often be found performing in the foyer at The Lowry or at Victoria Baths. They sing what I can only describe as really fun songs, that will have you wanting to join in and humming them for the rest of the day. It’s free and I guarantee will put a smile on your face!
We have come to expect great things from The Edge theatre, and their half term offering looks to bring more quality performances direct to Chorlton. They also have a really good offer, with a 3 family shows for just £16.50, or £10.50 for concessions. Who can resist shows as cute as The Tap Dancing Mermaid?! Find out more about the offer and the performances.
Have a very merry bank holiday!
