Bombay Sapphire unveils Canvas Manchester

Bacardi Ltd.'s Bombay Sapphire has announced a series of events called Canvas Manchester, combining art and mixology.

The event will be live on 24 and 25 October 2018 at Tariff & Dale bar in the Northern Quarter.

Guests at Canvas Manchester will join two artists in the transformation of Tariff & Dale, where illustrator Chris Arran and typographic artist Tobias Hall will create evolving works of art over the course of the two-day event. Guests will also experience mixology as an art form with the opportunity to personalise and customise their own Bombay Sapphire serves.

Manchester artist Chris Arran will take over the entrance stairwell of the venue with a bold, original piece created especially for the event, as well as using elements of his previous works to create a striking window vinyl. Illustrator, letterer, designer and artist Tobias Hall will work on a live mural, gradually building on the design throughout the event.

Chris Arran comments: “I’m excited to be working with Bombay Sapphire to bring Canvas to Manchester for the very first time. The Northern Quarter is a real cultural hub, home to the creative industries and some of the city’s best street art, which makes it the perfect location for Canvas. We want to inspire the people who visit Canvas and make them feel part of the creative process.”

On arrival, guests will be invited to stir their creativity at the Bombay Sapphire and Tonic Wall which features a range of tonic-on-tap options. The Canvas cocktail will also be on offer – a white-coloured Bombay Sapphire serve which guests can take to the ‘Cocktail Finishing Studio’ to personalise their cocktail with flavoured edible garnishes.

All ticket sale proceeds from Canvas Manchester will be donated to local charity Forever Manchester to support creative projects.

Tickets are priced at £8 and can be purchased by visiting:
