Manchester Art Gallery is open every Thursday until 9pm.

The gallery adopts a more grown-up mood in the evening. Meet friends for a cheeky beer or glass of wine and forget the hassles of your day when you browse our exhibitions and displays.

There’s often something special going on too, from live music to an artist’s talk. Check below or give us a call for details of what’s happening each week.

Art in mind : de-stress with art
6-7pm

FREE

Art in mind is a new series of informal conversations on art and its relationship to our wellbeing.

Recent studies have shown that simply visiting an art gallery is good for our mental and physical health and that connecting with other people and artworks can have a significant impact on our wellbeing. Here at Manchester Art Gallery we want to provide visitors with the opportunity to explore further the unique relationship between art and our wellbeing.

Taking part in activities that are good for our wellbeing can help lift our mood, help us think more positively and reduce stress.

Each session we'll look at a particular artwork, explore its historical context and different themes and use it as a springboard to discuss different wellbeing topics such as; what makes us happy; overcoming fear; the nature of the human condition. But the conversation could go in any direction!

This is an opportunity for you to learn more about some of our most popular artworks and new exhibitions, share your thoughts with others and learn a little bit more about art and wellbeing.

It's an open and relaxed group discussion led by our friendly guide. Remember you don't have to be an expert to talk about art. You are also welcome to just come along and listen. It's up to you.

Small changes can make a big difference.

Free, no need to book
