Thursday Lates

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.

Philosophy Cafe at Thursday Lates

This Thursday evening session will be an informal discussion session looking at a philosophical question. The session will start in the gallery cafe bar and will then continue in the gallery spaces using a related artwork.

Absolutely everyone is welcome; the only requirement is a willingness to be open and friendly toward others' points of view. It's a great way to have a meaningful conversation, meet new people and gives you the perfect excuse to visit the gallery.
