We may be in the grip of Manchester International Festival, but there's plenty going on elsewhere around the city too. And some of it won't cost you a penny. Like Thomas Restaurant and Bar's live music night, Sessions, for example.
The monthly night returns to the Northern Quarter restaurant bar this Thursday night with a wonderfully eclectic line up of international talent - and it's completely free to enjoy.
This month's line-up includes Irish gypsy folk from Naymedici, Indian infused songwriting from Manchester's own Sukh, gravel toned blues rock from GC Homes of The Genitals and Czech street music from Accordian performer Rosata. As well as the music there's also funny and heartfelt poetry from Rod Tame, and live visuals from KHOM.
Get down from 7pm to get a table - or you could reserve your spit in advance for free through DesignMyNight. Book your table at Thomas Restaurant and Bar now.
