From frivolous festivals to damn delicious pop-ups, check out our recommendations for the best goings on this September in Manchester.
A great way to see off those post-summer blues this month, head to Elnecot on the 25th for a night of delicious German wines. Turning their Ancoats restaurant in a Berlin-style bar, Elnecot will also be bringing the atmosphere of the German capital with kebabs and live DJ.
