Museums at Night is an annual, nocturnal celebration of the best of our museums and galleries – but Manchester has put it’s own twist on proceedings with Manchester After Hours, a one night only, city wide social. A mix of odd couplings and unexpected partnerships. A chance for you to get into places and spaces not normally open after hours. It’s Museums at Night, It’s Manchester After Hours.
As part of this exciting festival Instigate Arts presents Sound from the Stores; a unique one-night-only event that will see the Engine Hall of the People’s History Museum transformed into a sensory den of sound and vision. Audiences are welcomed to this special performance by some of Manchester’s most original and pioneering sound artists. All artists involved have created newly commissioned pieces to perform, inspired and created from the museum’s wealth of archive material, exploring some of today’s most socially and politically relevant issues.
Performances will be accompanied by light and video projection of archival materiel which will be available to explore by the audience following the performances when there will be an informal opportunity to talk with artists, archivists and organisers about the work, collections and the whole project.

We’re really pleased to be teaming up with both Manchester After Hours and the People’s History Museum and can’t wait to develop what will be a wonderful evening.
