Sadly, I didn't get to see The Blue Nile at the Manchester International Festival last night. We had run out of options for babysitting, so we didn't get to the Bridgewater Hall. Steven Lindsay reports all was well and I look forward to a first hand account of a rare live performance by Paul Buchanan's magical ensemble.
Still, it was probably as much excitement as one day can handle. We went to a special 3D screening of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at the Printworks in Manchester, courtesy of KPMG. A great film, by any measure.
