The Montgolfier Brothers at Manchester Central Library

  • 15 May 2014 6-8pm

Our trend-spotting friends at Hey! Manchester host Manchester-based band Montgolfier Brothers. The trio has been making records since 1988 but rarely play live: they will be performing in the library’s strangely echoing Reading Room, in what looks set to be a truly unique event (6pm-8pm, free; booking recommended).

Suitable for

  • Any age
