Celebrating Manchester’s Rave Culture through Film, Discussions and Dancing

Over the last 18 months, The Lapsed Clubber Project at Manchester Metropolitan University has worked with Manchester Digital Music Archive and Heritage Lottery Funding to produce The Lapsed Clubber Audio Map with input from the raving community that shaped Manchester during the 1985-1995 rave era. You can check out the map here:

Our next event will celebrate Manchester’s rave culture through film, discussions and, of course, dancing. The event will include:
