Tickets Manchester

MOST CURIOUS Manchester will take place on the 29th February at Depot, Mayfield, and marks our first ever Northern show. So, what can you expect?

Most Curious is going to fill the Archive Railway Arches with over 60 exhibitors with their finger on the pulse and creativity in their hearts.

Most Curious + Follow

It’s a curated show with 140 exhibitors chosen by the team for their design and fashion-led outlook and products, with bespoke and artisanal approaches, to ensure creative and style-led couples can have a wedding day that truly reflects them. Just a reminder of how wonderful these shoes are, here’s a film that captures the London vibe, by our friends Zach and Grace, for LMD Collective.

We introduced you to some of our Manchester exhibitors back in January but each of them are nothing short of brilliant, and represent the kind of boundary pushing creatives we share so much passion for representing.

We want to spread the MOST CURIOUS message and bring our own brand of cool to the wedding scene in the North of England. We want to create a platform to join forces with and champion local designers, stars and talent and to take a new step in being an exciting, creative resource for the brides of the region. This really is a big deal for us. Becky Hoh-Hale, Founder, Most Curious

It will be a range of exciting local names as well as good old chunk of the London crew, such as Ann Marie Faulkner, Velvet Johnstone, Andrea Hawkes, The Workbench, Lee Garland (ok he’s actually from the Midlands but he’s exhibited at London for four years!) and TwentySix.

One big part of the Most Curious magic that we are bringing is the styling of the show to inspire you in with ideas of how to style your own venue, every year we have a theme and we will be ensuring the chosen vibe; florality and paternity takes over the industrial space in Manchester too, with florals but our sponsor and Manchester floristry royalty Frog Flowers, who will create the catwalk flowers and some extra special styling criss crossing over one rail way arch.

The second arch will be taken over by Boomting Bunting decor-wise, with some serious installations going on alongside the tactile, shiny backdrop creations by Mariel Osborn. Booting will also be bringing the chintz overload curtains of dreams to dress the stage.

Alice Gabb’s banners are coming on a road trip too, as out Fi Graham’s giant bows of wonder.

Who said rail way arches couldn’t be fancy!
