‘Couch to 5K’ @ Brough Park
Mar 4 @ 9:00 am – Dec 30 @ 10:00 am

Get off the couch and start to get fit or fitter through running, jogging or even walking within the pleasant, traffic free parkland of Brough Park.
The aim is to transform you from couch potato to runner by allowing you to build up through a variety of distances: 1.5K, 2.2K, 3.6K and up to 5K and over, as many weeks as it takes.

‘Couch to 5K’

Rocks @ The Nicholson Museum & Art Gallery
Mar 4 @ 10:00 am – Apr 8 @ 4:00 pm



Geoff Archer was born in Manchester in 1945 but has lived in Macclesfield for over forty years. In the late nineties he turned from images of the urban landscape to drawings and paintings of rocks – close-up details with a concentration on pattern, colour, tone and texture.
The work in this exhibition presents responses both to local, Peak District rocks and to landscapes further afield, most notably that of the western United States
