Remake Remodel: Wes Anderson Party at The Deaf Institute, Manchester 29 March 2018 Tickets from £5.30 — Book now

Remake Remodel take over The Deaf Institute this Easter Thursday for a Wes Anderson themed bash. Taking cues from the cult film director’s meticulous style, the venue will be full of Andersonian props and decor, including a The Grand Budapest Hotel-esque Mendl’s cake stall and themed drinks.

Anderson’s films are chock full of memorable characters and attendees should note that there will be a prize for the best fancy dress on the night. Partygoers might want to grab a blue shirt and red beanie for a Team Zissou look, emulate the cast of The Royal Tenenbaums (extra points for dysfunctional bickering), dig out a neckerchiefs for a Moonrise Kingdom-style Khaki Scout, or go full on woodland creature à la The Fantastic Mr. Fox.

The director is nothing if not an aesthete and Remake Remodel promise to match the visuals with an impeccably selected soundtrack plucked from his films. Think David Bowie, The Stooges and The Velvet Underground, with a bit of The Beatles and Faces thrown in for good measure. It’s bound to be a riot, in a refined, slightly melancholy sort of way.
