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 Fat Out till you Pass Out show of your choice

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

Two tickets to a future paid Bad Language show

A Shakespeare Goodie Bag from John Rylands Library

A copy of Xu Bing’s ‘Book From the Ground’  from the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art

A £10 gift voucher for Manchester Craft & Design Centre

A fair trade throw by Ian Snow from Oklahoma

To be in with a chance of winning, please click the link below and complete the survey. Closing date is 10am Friday 27 May 2016.

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 how to make the world a better place at People’s History Museum and SICK! Festival, 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 for the new year? How about a residency (or two) in a former mill, an original take on a film soundtrack, or the cream of Manchester’s current music scene coming together for an action-packed all-dayer?

The Suppliant Women

Theatre

This month we’ve got something very old, a couple of things rather new, something borrowed from the Americans and something dressed in Oldham Athletic blue.
