Gothic Manchester Festival 2017

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

The Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies presents the annual Gothic Manchester Festival. The festival hosts a range of events & activities – each designed to showcase Manchester’s Gothic dimensions during the week before Hallowe’en.

This year the festival turns its attention to the topic of Gothic Style(s). With the Gothic seemingly as popular as ever at the start of the 21st Century, the festival will explore the ways in which the mode has infected the mainstream. As usual, the festival centres around a one day conference – which will set you back a very reasonable £10 – with a series of free events surrounding it.

With everything from a Gothic street-style catwalk to film screenings, literary events and even a club night on offer, there’s no excuse not to indulge your inner dark side this October.
