Dave Haslam: Nightlife in 1940s Manchester

Things to do

Find out what a late-night knees-up looked like back in t'day.

This talk celebrating Manchester's venues and clubs from the 1940s is led by none other than Dave Haslam - a man who knows more than a thing or two about the city's nightlife thanks to his prolific Hacienda days.

Exploring everything from Moss Side's informal shebeens to the Mecca-owned Ritz that still stands proudly on Whitworth Street West, this one covers the effect of the war on the culture of going out, along with the post-war boom of basement clubs.

This one's free, but you'll need to book here.
