Cultural Calendar 2020

Creative Tourist

The Cultural Calendar returns for 2020, our editors’ annual list of some of the best-looking arts and cultural events in Manchester and the North in 2020. It’s only the beginning of a new year – a new decade in fact – and there will be plenty more added to this list as they’re announced. This list is intended to be inclusive with something for everyone; from family picks to literary highlights via acclaimed international musicians, a musical take on a Hollywood classic (that we’re actually genuinely excited about!) to outstanding exhibitions and festivals.

This is what we have penciled in our diaries so far, come back to the Cultural Calendar for updates throughout the year. You can keep up-to-date with what’s happening across Manchester and the North with our specialist Cinema, Exhibitions, Theatre, Literature, Music and Family guides. Want more? Follow us on all the usual socials and subscribe to our mailing list to get this kind of thing every Friday lunchtime.

Have fantastic cultural adventures in 2020.
