Grab Your Coat, You've Pulled | Manchester 24th November - 1st December

Where exactly has November gone? This week we were greeted with cold blasts from the east and next, well, dare we dream of snow? The temptation to stay home grows stronger, but we think we might be able to persuade you to venture beyond your front door with our stellar line-up of events and experiences taking place across the fair city of Manchester.

Yolklore’s weekly round-up is curated to provide you with a comprehensive guide of the best things to see, do, and experience in and around the city. We strive to give you an original events guide and transport you away from the every day.

Waking you up from the sleepwalk of life and helping you off that hamster wheel. GYCYP is inspired by this city’s creatives, restaurants, coffee shops and change-makers, and shines a light on the awesome merry-go-round of events darting their way across Manchester.

From Pakistani fine dining to knitting and noodles, we’ve got the weekly round-up that you need to dazzle up of your days, and spice up your 5-9.

Cos there’s a whole world out there.
