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.
