Manchester-based artist and photographer Robert Parkinson will showcase his new exhibition, Leveller, at Northern Quarter’s Port Street Beer House. Stories from the last century of Britain’s public houses are told through a variety of art forms with themes that include paraphernalia of pub-born political movements, the lifecycle of darts, pub rock and work which is screen printed onto chip-shop paper. The launch event on Thursday (22 Sep) coincides with the tap debut for local brewer Squawk’s new black IPA. There’s live entertainment too from folk singer Jennifer Reid who will be singing traditional pub ditties and bringing an old-fashioned public house atmosphere to the occasion. The exhibition runs throughout October.

Thu 22 Sep & then ongoing, Port Street Beer House, 39-41 Port Street, Manchester, M1 2EQ. Tel: 0161 237 9949, 6pm-9pm, FREE,
