Art Battle Debenhams

Art Battle Debenhams

The former Debenhams unit in Stockport town centre is to host a live art battle event on Friday 23rd of September. The event is ticketed and sold half of the ticket allocation in just 3 days. It is important to add it is a real privilege to have this event in Stockport as the Art Battle Manchester team have never held an event outside of the city. So, what is an Art Battle… Well, we will let the Art Battle Manchester team explain that one. 

“Art Battle Manchester XX – Upbeat On The High Street will feature ten new fearless artists taking centre stage. A capacity crowd will watch painters, illustrators, tattooists and street artists go head-to-head in what has been described as Manchester’s most energetic art event. With only 30 minutes to create a masterpiece – YOU will decide who is crowned Champion”

On arrival all visitors are given voting tokens – at the end of reach round the punters vote with their tokens to select winners. This really connects the audience with the action taking place in front of their very eyes. We have visited a Manchester event and can honestly say the atmosphere is incredible. Not only that, but what artists can create in their half an hour slot is unbelievable. 

All the art is auctioned off at the end of the event to raise money for a local charity. Along with the art performances there is pop up bars, street food traders, Djs, live graffiti and street art creators and other animations. This event is going to be a one off and will not happen again so our advice is to get it booked and join us there before it sells out!

This Godless Place Stockport

This Godless Place Stockport

Located on Bridge Street (near that outrageously steep hill to the marketplace) This Godless Place joins the ever growing independent food & drink scene in Stockport. This Bar & Canteen is all about offering a new relaxed dining space in the historic setting of the Old Union Bank. 

This Godless Place is the latest venture by Martin Healy of The Good Rebel, he told us “Stockport continues to thrive and grow and I wanted to grow with it”. It is great to see local businesses expanding and choosing to contribute further to SK1’s regeneration.

The space itself does an excellent job of reinvigorating the features of the iconic bank – whether that be from opening up the ornate ceiling, stripping back to the historic brick walls or utlising the old bank vaults. The height of the room really is incredible and the feeling of openness and depth takes you back as you enter the restaurant. We should also mention that there is disabled access and disabled facilities.

Martin was well aware that there is room for more eateries to set up shop in Stockport and the casual dining menu including tacos, Mac n Cheese, burgers, loaded fries and grilled cheese will help fill that gap. The food offering includes a variety of options for changing pallets, with a special mention of the on trend Vegan Beyond Burger.

Currently on draft, Union Bank Craft Lager (for obvious reasons), Estrella, Guiness, Poretti and some other crowd pleasers. There are also a selection of cocktails, bottled beers, and curated wines.

Opening next week this new establishment offers a new type of venue to Stockport town centre with a focus on eats and casual drinks. If you are looking to support new and local we highly recommend you pop down, follow them on socials and show them your support.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, it’s dog friendly!
