We started the ‘What to do in Manchester’ weekly blog post in September. We’ve been delighted by the response and really enjoy promoting events and places to go. So, it will be joining Numagoo again in 2014. As a digital marketing agency based in Manchester it is important for us to share with our readers the many events that make our city unique. Readers input is also important to us so if you know of any hidden gems let us know.
Sunday Acoustic Sessions at Band on the Wall. Sunday 15th Dec. How better to say farewell to the weekend than winding down to some free acoustic music, showcasing some of the cities finest talent. If you quite fancy getting up yourself there are open mic slots from 6.30pm. This Sunday is the last event of the year so its not one to be missed. What is even better the event is free for all!
The other side of Yuletide – Corner house. 14th Dec – 23rd Dec. In most families Christmas films and theatre trips can be something of a ritual. Christmas has inspired many films full of romance, excitement and inevitable happy endings. However, the corner house on Oxford Road has decided to go over to the dark side of the Christmas films. The family favourite Its a Wonderful life (20th-23rd Dec) has some unsettling undertones before the desperately low businessman George Bailey is saved. It will also be showing a collection of festive ghost stories, Ealing Studio’s Dead of Night (21st Dec). The perfect excuse to have a glass of mulled wine to calm your nerves. If you fancy doing festive films a little differently this year then this is the option for you.
Big Hands – Oxford Road. Perhaps an unsung hero of Manchester’s night life, Big Hands perches on the edge of the city centre. Providing an exciting welcome to the city’s bars and clubs. Its location right next to Manchester Academy means its often has eclectic mix of pre or after gig visitors. The music is as varied as the punters, ranging from reggae to northern soul. Big Hands is Manchester at its best with a great selection of beers and a friendly atmosphere. An inside fact, it is a watering hole of Guy Garvey of Elbow. You can also find his beer ‘Build a rocket boys!’ is served on tap.
