One-night, city-wide, social
Manchester After Hours is back: our interpretation of the national Museums at Night festival of lates takes place only one night each year, bringing unusual collaborations and stand-out events to venues across the city.
Perhaps you didn’t know that Creative Tourist does the fundraising, coordination, programming, marketing and PR – delivered by our crack team of staff and associates – Ben Williams, Rivca Burns, Dave Sedgwick and Rachel Furst. This year the project is supported by Transport for Greater Manchester who will run a late night shuttle bus between the venues.
Manchester After Hours is funded by Arts Council England.
It all takes place on Thursday 18 May and will include experimental electronic music in the city centre’s oldest building, DJs and visual artists programmed by cult online radio station NTS Radio in the stunning surrounds of Whitworth art gallery, spoken word in the beautifully restored house of one of Manchester’s most historic authors and much, much more. Here’s our guide to the night, from which you can piece together your own extraordinary, nocturnal journey.
