There's a twenty minute film about Lowry and we were just finishing watching that when a door to the side of the screen opened and people came out including a man with a television camera and others carrying other equipment and then sis went 'ooh thats him.' and there was Ian Mckellan !!!! What a shock.
Eil quick as a flash had her camera and was off folllowing him for a photo. She managed to get a couple of photos of him sideways on as he walked away, but he acted like he hadn't heard or seen us. It must be so weird being famous and people recognising you all over the place. It was certainly weird for us seeing him out of the blue like that. We have no idea why he was there or what he was doing either.

We also had fun catching trams and chatting to random people, I don't know what it is about Eil but when I'm with her we always end up chatting to people. A lovely lady adopted us and showed us what tram to catch from victoria and then walked us over to the next stop for our second tram we needed. A lovely gentleman took a piccy of sis n me outside the lowry too and didn't steal my camera either lol. Plus we spoke to a couple of other people and staff in places we asked questions of who were friendly and helpful too. Manchester people seem so friendly, dare I say maybe even friendly than us yorkshire folk!!!!!!!!!!!
