We are offering a fantastic prize bundle to one lucky person who completes our Manchester After Hours survey – including a bunch of tickets, a goodie bag, vouchers and more.

Last night’s Manchester After Hours was amazing – the performances and the audiences surpassed our already-heightened expectations. For one glorious night, it felt as if the whole of Manchester was swept up in a cultural whirlpool, with some truly inspirational events taking place. Thank you to everyone who took part and attended.

We’d like to know how you found the whole experience

Now though, we need your help. If you came along to any or several of the events on 12 May, we’d like to know how you found the whole experience, so that we can see which parts worked especially well and can make things even better for next year.

THIS SURVEY HAS NOW CLOSED.

Courtesy of several of our After Hours partners, we’re offering a huge bundle of prizes to one lucky winner who completes the survey.

The prizes are:

Two tickets to any Hey! Manchester show of your choice

Two tickets to any RNCM programmed show of your choice from their Summer season

Families

We celebrate all things boundary breaking and ambitious this month – think aerial interactive fairy tales at museums, a “story slide”, cutting edge technology, riotous street performance and the best summer festival experiences.
