NEXT EVENT VOL 20

PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 20 - 'Future'

It’s a bit of a milestone for PechaKucha Night Manchester. 20 editions of our 20x20 event: 20x20x20, if you will. In order to mark the occasion we thought we’d have a gaze into the future and invite some of the best design talent living and working in the city to take on the PechaKucha 20x20 challenge: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide, no stopping. 

Tickets are limited for this one so get in quick to avoid missing out.

Line-up

On the Night

The doors open at 19:00 and the talks start at 19:30. We'll have a beer break just after 20:00. The talks should be finished by 21:15 where you'll have a chance to mingle afterwards.  

Sponsors

Thanks as ever to our paper sponsors, G . F Smith.

Jon Gildea's Para-cyclist Journey

BY JON GILDEA
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 07, 2017

Jon Gildea began mountain bike racing at the age of 13 and represented Great Britain as a junior rider. He always remained a keen cyclist and in 2012 he was badly injured in a mountain bike accident and broke his left leg badly. This injury meant that he was now eligible for para-cycling events and after being classified as C5 he was accepted onto the British Cycling Paralympic Development programme in 2013. 

After joining the Great Britain Cycling Team in 2013 Jon made rapid progress on the track and road, his career highlight so far becoming a double world champion at the 2017 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Los Angeles.
