For parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles the start of the summer holidays can often raise one important question… how to keep the little ones entertained. Well do not fear Manchester Museum are here to help.

They will be running a series of film events from the 4th to the 7th of August 2011. The programme includes a special after hours screening of the animated film Ponyo, the tale of a goldfish-girl who befriends a five year only human boy, written and directed by Japanese manga artist Hayao Miyazaki.

The screenings are part of the Family Friendly Film Club Weekender which is taking place at venues across the Northwest including Manchester Art Gallery, MOSI and The Continental in Preston.
