Our cultural countdown to Christmas… Finally – the launch of our Cultural Calendar 2016.

With the final box in our 2014 Advent Calendar comes the launch of our Cultural Calendar for 2016 – our pick of the very best and most intriguing arts events across the North in the coming year.

Our Cultural Calendar 2016 launches

There’s an exhibition devoted to the world’s newest (and strangest) material, Graphene, a one-off from Manchester International Festival, art from the likes of Tracey Emin, Francis Bacon and KAWS, as well as the return of Wonder Women, Manchester After Hours, Glasgow International, Light Up Lancaster and more. And, thanks to our cultural round-up, you needn’t miss any of it. Merry Christmas, and bring on the New Year!
