If, like us, you’ve been patiently awaiting the time when we can rekindle the party, you’ll be equally excited about Girl Gang’s Girls Night Out. HOPEFEST will be taken over for the evening and filled with performance, activities and the chance to soak up the atmosphere of a party.

we’re very excited to see their hand crafted nights returning to the physical realm

Whether you’ve already made those first ventures out or have been waiting for a low pressure, accessible evening, you’re bound to be welcomed into the Girl Gang family with warmth and big tunes. Socially distanced tables are available for groups of 2, 4 and 6 so grab your favourite womxn and book it in, knowing you can feel safe and covid compliant without it being detrimental to the party. Those looking for a solo ticket can get one from the Hope Mill Box office, it’s a great way to meet new friends and reconnect with a community.

Girl Gang are currently opening up the evening’s entertainment with a call out for performers, so if you’re Manchester based and performer of any variety, get in touch. Previous evenings have seen hula hoopers billed next to magicians and heartfelt monologues providing the supporting role to energetic dance. Whatever your talent, Girl Gang would love to hear from you.

Girl Gang are a group of activists, academics, artists and party instigators who organise wonderful, wacky and wholesome events for a diverse range of womxn. They are brilliant at making safe and accessible spaces where friendships can form, discussions can be held and everyone can relax. After holding many successful events on zoom during the past year, we’re very excited to see their hand crafted nights returning to the physical realm and bringing a sense of community to a Friday Night, with their particular style of well curated Girls Night Out.
