Manchester After Hours Is Nearly Here
Manchester After Hours have lots of activities happening this week for one day only where the public of Manchester are welcome to attend, all for free.
Manchester After Hours is an event which takes place one night each year. If you live in Manchester or are visiting during Thursday 18 May 2017, there are many enjoyable events to attend across our wonderful libraries, art, and history museums to a special Metroshuttle bus route.
There are workshops, music, and cocktails involved in this exciting annual event, with a range of venues hosting the occasion from Manchester Art Gallery to Elizabeth Gaskell’s House.
A selection of the events which will be taking place are below:
Hey! Manchester on the Buses
19:00 – 23:00
Transport for Greater Manchester (TFGM) are using their Metroshuttle 2 service to offer free travel throughout the evening. The reason behind the ‘Hey!’ is related to the music live performances as the promoter is named ‘Hey!’
