What a venue! Arguably the most spiritual place in the UK to hold a MBS event...The Monastery, Manchester!
87 stands!Just take a look at the amazing pictures on the Monastery website, and you will get a feeling for the place - www.themonastery.co.uk.
As soon as we saw it, we just knew we had to be the ones to do a show there, practical difficulties notwithstanding.
A packed event
This will be our 8th show at The Monastery, and once again for the April 2013 show, we have stands fitted into every conceivable part of this wonderful building, to bring you a wide range of exhibitors to talk to and explore - some are newcomers to BSSK, drawn by the magic of the event, others BSSK regulars who do many of our shows during a year.
For this event we are introducing the ability to pre-book refreshments (N.B. online pre-booking no longer available) under the direction of the Monastery's new Head Chef Graham Campbell, to complete your Monastery Experience!
Next we have a huge choice of free lectures throughout the weekend and a wide variety of paid workshops lasting around 2 hours each. These include all manner of exciting things, from psychic development to angels! We use the Private Chapel and various conference rooms in the Monastery for these, some of which seat only small numbers. The two largest rooms are reserved for the free lectures to give the maximum number of free seats, but advanced booking is recommended for all lectures and workshops, even the free ones, to avoid disappointment.
The Monastery has free parking which will be stewarded, overflow parking just across the road, and if that all fills up, there is ample on-road parking in the vicinity. If driving, although only five minutes by car from the city centre, the Monastery is between the outer and inner ring road, so it is not necessary to drive through the city centre, if like me, such a thing would be your worst nightmare!
If taking the train, on reaching Manchester Picadilly, take the local train to a station called Ashbury's. This is the closest to the Monastery. The station called Gorton is actually further to walk. There is also a bus stop right outside the Monastery, with buses every 20 minutes or so.
At previous shows, visitors came from all over the country, even from as far away as Somerset and Aberdeen, and found it certainly worth the trip. Why not book a B&B and have a whole weekend devoted to you - your Mind, Body and Spirit!
