Northern Quarter After-Dark is part of Manchester After-Hours festival, a one off evening of arts, culture & music taking place across the city on Thursday 15th May in conjunction with Culture 24 & Museums at Night.

Join us around the Northern Quarter from 6pm, for a nocturnal celebration of the best of creativity in our city, showcased in unique venues & in unexpected ways. 

Participating venues include: 
Manchester Craft & Design Centre, 17 oak street, m4 5jd
Matt & Phreds, The Bay Horse, Common, Twenty Twenty Two, MMU Unit X & The Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art to name but a few…

Once a place of hard physical graft, the Northern Quarter is now Manchester’s boho district for the hip & happening, where mill workers, weavers & market traders have been replaced by artists, designers, & independent boutiques. On this night the areas arts venues & galleries, shops & restaurants, pubs & bars will be mixing it up in one big cultural mash-up.’ – Creative Tourist
