Only those lucky few who have been to the top floor of the iconic Swan Buildings in Ancoats – home to Swan Kitchens, Back on Track’s social enterprise café – know what a special experience it is. The good news is that for the first time we are opening to the public for a one off Manchester afternoon tea, as part of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival fringe.
Swan Kitchens is run by people who have been through problems with alcohol or drugs, offending, homelessness and mental health, and are in a process of recovery or rehabilitation. Working at Swan Kitchens means they can get the skills and experience they need to build a better future. Also, all profits are reinvested into our services for disadvantaged people – no shareholders there. Doing good never tasted so good!
The quirky menu is a joyful celebration of our city, with everything from Manchester tart to Manchester honey scones on offer. And all made and served by people getting their lives back on track. What’s not to love? It’s happening on Tuesday 5 October at 5pm – get your tickets now, because when they’re gone, they’re gone!
