Keep it down? Nah – turn it UP….

In February 2020 as part of MIF’s Festival in my Neighbourhood series, Wythenshawe Forum Library hummed with sound and music for Rhythmshawe Festival.

Rhythmshawe invited audiences to sample songwriting, try beat-making and give DJing a go. There was live music performances, radio broadcasts and installations of recorded soundscapes.

The Rhythmshawe creators invited guests to play their favourite songs and recount their own Stories in Sound, broadcast live on Reform Radio.


Rhythmshawe was created by a group of young Mancunians for Manchester International Festival’s Festival In My Neighbourhood series and Manchester Libraries ‘Creative Spaces Programme and was delivered in partnership with Reform Radio and Creative City
