Join us for the thrilling launch of our brand new curated web portal HAUNT Manchester (part of the Visit Manchester site).
HAUNT Manchester brings together everything spooky, historically horrible, Gothic and goth from across Greater Manchester. From Gothic buildings, to ghostly walking tours and Halloween fun, this is your one stop shop for everything atmospheric, weird and wonderful in the region.
Brought to you by researchers from the Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies, the Manchester Centre for Public History and Heritage and the Encountering Corpses project (all at Manchester Metropolitan University) in partnership with cultural organisations and businesses from across the city, HAUNT is a unique place that curates the very best events, journalism and research stories on dark, unusual and eerie topics into one easily accessible location.
Expect plenty of ghosts, graveyards, gritty local history, tattoos, taxidermy, atmospheric eateries, curious shopping, dressing up, hanging out and much more. There really is something for everyone, whether you are a curious visitor or just want to see a whole new side to this city – don’t just visit Manchester, HAUNT it!
Our launch party will be taking place from 7pm until 9pm at 70 Oxford Street Manchester (the old Cornerhouse).
