The jewel in the BSSK crown!
87 stands!This one has to be the jewel in the BSSK crown. I can't think of a better place to host a Mind, Body and Spirit event than in the amazing setting of Pugin's gothic masterpiece, The Monastery, Manchester!
The facilities at this show enable us to run around 70 talks/workshops in the course of the weekend - some of the rooms only seat small numbers, but the amount on offer means that almost everyone gets to see and hear something interesting if they so wish. Many however are content to enjoy the main show, drinking in the atmosphere and enjoying the amazing building.
If the weather is kind to us, the Monastery gardens are usually full of people chilling out with their lunch, inspecting their purchases, meeting up with friends or listening to the impromptu music and dance that often springs up.
The Monastery provide hot and cold food during the day and so it is possible to arrive for 10am and still be happily engaged at 5pm when the day ends - many do, some booking a B&B in advance to return for a second day, some travelling from Europe to attend!
The range of exhibitors, readings, therapies and goods on offer is as impressive as always, but somehow seems even more impressive with the wonderful Monastery as a backdrop.
If you attend any of our other shows local to you, it is worth making a trip to the Monastery, we don't think you will be disappointed!
