Manchester Art Gallery is open until 9pm every Thursday evening.
This summer, Thursday Lates are inspired by our big summer exhibition and the city-wide season of music and art We Face Forward – Art from West Africa Today.
This Thursday, come and enjoy our exhibitions and displays. Meet up with friends, drop in for food and drinks, browse the galleries and shop at your leisure.
Art Bites, 6-6.30pm
Join our informal chat about art. Have your say about what's on display or just come along and listen.
All the way from The Gambia, Jali Nyonkoling Kuyateh plays haunting melodies on the Kora, an African harp, in the gallery atrium. Get a flavour of what you'll hear here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01flExwJM98
Cafe, until 9pm
Relax, unwind and take advantage of the cafe's special evening menu. Enjoy tasty nibbles such as marinated olives, bowls of chips and breads with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, as well as some delicious sharing platters.
We look forward to seeing you.
