Manchester After Hours 2018

Sara Jaspan, Exhibitions Editor

Part of UK-wide Museums at Night festival for the culturally curious, Manchester After Hours has brought thousands of post-5pm experience seekers to the city over the years, attracted by its ever-changing roster of unusual events and out of the ordinary collaborations. Though this fifth edition features a slightly more compact programme as organisers pause to consider how to grow even bigger and better going forwards, we think it’s safe to say that you’ll be just as hard pushed as ever to squeeze such an inspired selection of happenings into one night. Our tip: swap office shoes for comfy trainers.
