Three Christmas Stars of Manchester Museum

(With apologies to the original beautiful carol!)

Poem written by Culture Champion Nakib Narat, inspired by the Made to Measure Session we held with the Culture Champions last December.

Lovely Three Stars of Zoom event

Bearing gifts so generously sent.

Magical Manchester Museum’s curiosities

Gifted from Orient to Occident.

 

Maria Jose’s “Made to Measure”

Amazing, extraordinary treasures! 

From “Beauty & The Beasts” luminosities:

Dmitri & Rachel’s personal pleasures.

 

O Stars of wonder, stars so bright

Joyful, learning. So discerning

Rachel & Dimitri ’s wondrous sights!

 

Entomology to Botany and Zoology

Mantis Shrimp to Moths and bugs that glow

Herbariums for ecosystems yearning

As Insectophiles gather ‘neath the Mistletoe

 

Humans and insects connected.

All life only protected 

When we are a whole.

All life only protected

When we are a whole

Thank You very much to Curators Rachel Webster and Dmitri Logunov for the wonderful Zoom talk about their work, displays and stories about some of the extraordinary plants and creatures in the Manchester Museum

The Stretford Wall of Fame

The Stretford Wall of Fame is a celebration of people connected to Stretford who have contributed to arts, culture, and social and political change within our community and beyond. Selected by local residents, and reflecting changing historical boundaries, there will be some people you will know and some you may not. We wanted to use this space to shine a light on the successes of the people less recognised for their achievements.
