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.
