Manchester Voices Launch Night at Manchester Central Library, Manchester, 22 April 2017 - Book now

Manchester Voices is an ongoing project investigating and celebrating the accents, dialects, and people of Greater Manchester. It looks at the ways in which our use of language makes us who we are and explores perceptions of the way we speak across the region.

Following a tour of the ten Greater Manchester boroughs in the Manchester Voices ‘Accent Van’ is the launch of this interactive exhibition, where you can hear voices from across the region: listen to people talking about themselves and their communities, the way they speak, and their sense of local and regional identity. There will be various spaces and installations telling the story of the project’s findings so far, including interactive map displays, as well as audio and video clips. Visitors will be invited to add their own voices to the project.

The exhibition, which runs 22 June to 31 August, will be launched with a wine reception and a performance event (5-8pm, 22 June) featuring traditional and modern dialect poetry, introductory talks by the researchers, and special guests.
