Candle-making, cheese-tasting, t-shirt upcycling – your social schedule's looking interesting this June

IT could be because they're from a big family that the seven McAvoy brothers understand the value of a proper get-together. While some of us spend our evenings staring into our phone screens, they're bringing together the apartment-dwellers of Ancoats in real-life – with a packed schedule of crafty nights, clubs, and quizzes at their pub.

There's loads of events coming up at the Seven Bro7her's Beerhouse on Cutting Room Square this June. If you're looking for face-to-face conversation rather than Facebook likes this summer, why not go along?
