We're excited to be bringing Museums Showoff to Manchester in partnership with Manchester Histories Festival.
Museums Showoff is the open mic night where people who work in and love museums tell us why in any way they like. It features behind-the-scenes stories and intriguing insights told through talks, song, poetry, jokes and more, by the people who know. The line up features curators, conservators, archaeologists, educators, explainers, museum studies student and theorists from some of Manchester's favourite museums. Full details of who will be performing can be found on the Museums Showoff website.
A bar and refreshments will be available.
Booking is essential. A limited number of seats will be available on the night on a first come first served basis.
There is no fixed charge for this event but a donation is requested on the door in support of 42nd Street, who support the emotional wellbeing of children and young people. We suggest a donation of £5.
