If you’re unfamiliar with the film: “Fearless optimist Anna teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven and sets off on an epic journey to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.”

The film will be screened at 2:30-4:30pm this Saturday, December 14th, so cancel your plans and get yourself down.

Ahead of the Courteeners’ massive homecoming gig at Old Trafford next weekend, a Northern Quarter boozer is throwing a huge pre-show party to get all you concert-goers warmed up for the festivities.

The Pen & Pencil, located down Hilton Street, is throwing the do for all those who have managed to get their hands on tickets for the shows – and those who sadly haven’t, too.

And even more excitedly, XS Manchester DJ and overall legend Clint Boon will be in attendance, dishing out a load of the Courteeners’ top tunes plus a load of other staple Manc music.

The party is completely FREE to attend, and will be the perfect spot for getting into that concert mood we’ve all missed for the last year or so. The Pen & Pencil is also located just a short walk from the Piccadilly Metrolink stop, where you can jump on a tram and get to the gig in just ten minutes.

The gig is set to be one of Manchester’s first since the start of the pandemic, which saw all live music grind to a halt.

The Middleton-born rockers will be joined by The Smiths’ Johnny Marr and Stockport band Blossoms, as well as The Big Moon and Zuzu.

So, do you fancy it?

There’ll be no need to make a booking or reservation, all you’ll need to do is turn up and enjoy the music. The party starts at 4pm and runs through to 7pm.

Engines at the ready, drag racers; there’s a massive bottomless RuPaul’s Drag Race UK premiere event coming to a cinema here in Manchester.

As fans of the hit drag show will know, the highly anticipated third season of the UK version is landing on BBC iPlayer next week and to celebrate appropriately, GRUB Manchester is throwing the mother of all launch parties.

On Thursday, September 23rd, you and your friends will be able to watch the first episode of the new season alongside an abundance of bottomless bevs and delicious street food.

BBC

Costing £20pp, tickets also include a selection of fun additions to enjoy throughout the evening, including a welcome cocktail, ninety minutes of bottomless fizz, draught beer or wine, and a private table to enjoy with friends, positioned for prime viewing on the night.

Indoor and covered seating in the event of rain (which, let’s face it, is looking very likely this month) is also available, as is a number of independent and local food vendors dishing up tasty food and extra drinks.

Though it is worth noting that this event isn’t an official RuPaul viewing event, it is just a bit of fun for Drag Race fans and their friends.
