Culture Guides

Cinema

This month, we round up some of the disreputable treasures and genuinely ambitious pieces of film art that are screening around Manchester and the North.

Exhibitions

They say a picture is worth a thousand words – so, perhaps, can an object be, as our current selection of the very best exhibitions in Manchester and the North proves.

Families

It’s all about curious April Fool’s live performance at Z-arts, a ridiculous art race through the forest, swashbuckling historical heroism and imaginative theatrical adventures. Phew.

Benjamin Myers by Julian Germain Dunelm.

Literature

March sees talks and tours, birthdays and anniversaries, writers’ conferences and development days, and some rather big names on the literature scene.

Music

Why not try some new music in 2017? Whether it’s a residency in a former mill, an original take on a film soundtrack or award-winning classical music in a new concert hall, our picks have it covered.

Theatre

All the buzz right now is about Manchester International Festival, which has its strongest theatre and dance programme to date.
