Gothic Manchester Festival

The 2018 Gothic Manchester Festival took place on the 1st–5th August 2018

Welcome to the 6th annual Gothic Manchester Festival, themed on ‘Gothic Hybridities’.

We are here this year to explore how the Gothic stitches together a dark and delicious patchwork of different influences, aesthetics and emotions into a shadowy, grotesque and strangely beautiful edifice.

The Gothic throws its pale arms out to encompass the monstrous, the fantastical, the gory and the glorious. The Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies is here to bring you all this, and more. Please join as we celebrate vaulted architecture, evocative music, classic and contemporary writing and all kinds of Gothic queerness.

Manchester will never be the same.
