The Chat Show

Welcome to The Chat Show. Follow us behind the scenes and come along as we step onto the streets of Manchester and beyond, meeting people and sharing stories as we build the North of England's first South Asia gallery.

This is part of an exciting £13.5 million transformation, hello future, to become the most inclusive, imaginative and caring museum in the UK, to be complete in 2021. The South Asia gallery is a landmark partnership with The British Museum. The gallery will showcase world-class collections, together with the lived experiences of the South Asian diaspora in the UK, and a chance for these communities to share their stories, knowledge, heritage and culture. At the heart of the gallery will be a unique performance space, dedicated to showing the very best live music, dance and performance from and inspired by South Asia.
