Trafford’s flagship arts festival REFRACT:19 returns to Waterside, Sale for a third consecutive year July 18–27.

Back for its third edition, this 10-day event promises live comedy, music, dance, experiential performance and theatre.

Kicking off on July 18 is WireDo, a spectacle of tightwire stunts combined with the Japanese rope art of Shibari.

Manchester-based alternative singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Ben McGarvey also returns to Refract with the world première of his new audio-visual show Wolf Hours.

Refract:19 will see the transformation of Waterside’s traditional theatre spaces into a cabaret and gig venue hosting live performances.
