The ever industrious Manchester is not only the home of SUB, but plays host to a whole realm of strange and wonderful things. Whether it be music, film, books or the very fabric of the city, Manc has gothic running through its veins and through its inhabitants.
This academic year, Manchester brings you another first - The Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies - and what a wonderful home this northern citadel will make.
To celebrate its arrival there is another first - Manchester Gothic Festival. Taking us on tours of its streets and artworks, watching and discussing films made in its environs, educating us about its music and encouraging us to be inspired and create, the new Centre gives us quite a lot to chew on and whets our appetite for what delights it has in store for those undertaking the new course. Our good friends over at ARA have also opened their doors to the festival (and others besides) for a boogie and a chance to reflect on the events of the week.
Please take your internet browsers over to the Centre for Gothic Studies to find out more and come find us navigating its activities.
