Things to do in September

Creative Tourist

Summer is threatening to grab its hat and head south for the winter, but while the weather might be cooling down, arts and culture is just warming up. Here is our longlist of things to do in September in Manchester and the North.

Our highlights range from sprawling inner city music festivals like Manchester Psych Fest to the largest festival of contemporary visual art in the UK, Liverpool Biennial.

If you’re looking further ahead, read our guides to music, cinema, exhibitions, literature, theatre, tours & activities, and family events as well as our pick of the best places to eat and drink.
