Manchester's best late openings in Autumn 2019

The Manchester International Festival recently drew to a close, with a programme full of art, dance and drama that highlighted the rich culture that the city has to offer. Just because Summer is similarly drawing to a close, doesn’t mean that your culture fix needs to stop there. From a Football Writing Festival, to weekly Artnight Events, Manchester’s range of museums and galleries run late night events to keep you entertained long into the night.

My Head is Disconnected at HOME

David Lynch was just one artist featured at the Manchester International Festival, and whilst you may have missed the chance to hear him speak, you still have the opportunity to look at his work. My Head is Disconnected invites you to explore the quirky and dark workings of this visionary auteur’s mind. The weird and wonderful body of work combines paintings, sculptures, photography and live media, coming together in what can only be described as a twisted and dark wonderland, where your unease is quickly replaced with wonder.

My Head is Disconnected is open until 8pm Monday - Saturday, running until the 29 September. For more information visit the website.

Radical Lates at The People’s History Museum

The People’s History Museum is host to their ‘Radical Lates’, sessions designed to shed light on people, ideas and movements that have previously remained hidden. Marking 200 years since the infamous Peterloo Massacre, this season the lates look at the lasting impact of one of the most defining moments in Manchester’s history. This September explore the themes of ‘rebellion’, ‘resistance’ and ‘protest’ in a PechaKucha night, where speakers will tell their stories in the iconic 20 x 20 PechaKucha presentation format; 20 images, 20 seconds per image, with no stopping. It’s story-telling, just as you’ve never seen it before, and is definitely not to be missed.

Radical Lates will take place every second Thursday each month, 6pm - 8pm. For more information click here.
